{this moment}

{this moment} - A Friday ritual. Photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember. If you're inspired to do the same, visit Soulemama to leave a link to your 'moment' in the comments for all to find and see.

Merry Christmas
Family of the Vine

(note to self... 
when attempting Santa pictures, 
ALWAYS be prepared for a "family" picture
...just in case someone decides Santa looks creepy!)

Wordless Wednesday

La Posada

In the name of Heaven
I beg you for lodging,
for she cannot walk
my beloved wife.

Don't be inhuman;
Have mercy on us.
The God of the heavens
will reward you for it.

We are worn out
coming from Nazareth.
I am a carpenter,
Joseph by name.

I'm asking you for lodging
dear man of the house
Just for one night
for the Queen of Heaven.

My wife is Mary
She's the Queen of Heaven
and she's going to be the mother
of the Divine Word.

May God pay, gentle folks,
your charity,
and thus heaven heap
happiness upon you.
