WHY do children sing?
Why does the Bethlehem light gleam?
Why do our hearts throb with rousing joy?

Peace, pax and perfect harmony. Thank you Baby Yesu. Your birthday is forever imprinted in our minds and spirits. Honoring, hosting and heralding the timeless and greatest miracle are our true joys for all times. Two thousand years have come and gone but the golden Star from Bethlehem lights our Mother Earth forever more.

I live, I love, I learn because Baby Yesu lights and uplifts my being.

Love… love… love.

Love flowing in my heart, endearing wisdom oozing in my mind and razzmatazz energy pouring in my veins. December is a blessed month for this writer.
Yes! Dacal a salamat to every one who walked with me in my earthly sojourn.


Love reigns. How I wish we can ring the chimes of Christmas everyday in our home, hearth and happy abodes.

In conclusion, may I share this Little Christmas Tree poem by Amy Peterson:

“The littlest Christmas tree,
lived in a meadow of green,
Among a family,
of tall evergreens,
He learned how to whisper,
the evergreen song,
with the slightest of wind,
that came ...”
