Merry Christmas!

merry christmas


I truly wish this week is filled with good feelings, all are content, honest with themselves and comfortable with others.

I truly wish your life is simple, and you always have time when you need it.

I truly wish no one is hungry, scared or hurt.

I truly wish there is someone for you to love.



Yet, it is not always like that. Not with all of you.




Some of you are trying to keep your balance relying only on yourself. 



Some of you put their trust in God.

Yet, it is not always like that. Not with all of you.

Some of you have lost hope and have given up, both on God and on themselves. 

Please look out for those who might be having a hard time this Christmas – look out, even if you are one of them.

I traditionally share this Christmas video on my Facebook page. I think it is a treat to both believers and non-believers. Mike Masse performs acoustic covers at gigs in the US and internationally.



Joy and peace to the world.

  1. Beautiful Christmas message! Every word speaks of your kind and living nature, your compassion and thoughtfulness. I’m sooo glad to call you my friend, dear Inese! xxxxxxxxxx

  2. I may have missed this, Inese. If I said Merry Christmas to you, I am so happy! If I didn’t my heart was intending to. . .
    Wishing you a beautiful Happy New Year!
    I loved your message to look for those around us who may need to be hugged, loved or need hope or a nice meal. This was lovely and caring, dear friend.
    The picture of your new grandbaby with the pretty and sweet sisters is just perfect to represent Love. ❤

    1. Thank you so much, Robin! This year was tough, and I do hope for some improvement. Hope you had a wonderful Christmas, I am rushing to your blog right now 🙂
      Wishing you a peaceful, healthy and joyous New Year! Thank you for your friendship, love ❤

  3. I love the song! It sounds so pure and divine. These days I’ve been listening to a lot of Gregorian chants, its so amazing…. even though I don’t know if its played during Christmas, the tune is beautifully haunting.
    Very kind words for Christmas wishes, I hope they all come true. Merry Christmas once again!❤❤🌷🌸

  4. This was very touching, I can certainly relate (as you know) with all you said. Nice of you for thinking like that for other people and reminding others even if one of the other is one of “those” people.
    (If I don´t respond to your comment is because the damn wordpress and this computer, I think I can only see the comments if I go to the post I posted or through wordpress administration and hitting “comments”, I need a new computer “pronto”!!)

    1. Don’t worry about responding, I know you read, and I know you have problems with the internet. This was not a good year, for most people, and the new year will be tough, but more secure, they say. You just try to stay away from trouble, and write your poems, and may be even some sort of a book, some prose between the poems to glue all the thing together. You can always find advice on WP on publishing such book, and we your friends will be your first readers. Set a goal and go for it. This is the year. xx

  5. A belated Merry Christmas to you, too, Inese. The words of your post are so meaningful, as well as thought-provoking. Many people are not as fortunate as ourselves.
    This carol is another one I love and this arrangement is a joy to listen to. Thank you for sharing it.

  6. Beatiful pictures, and the comments match them very well. Thanks for sharing these thoughts. Merry Christmas!
