Blessed Christmas


The Adoration of the Shepherds, Bartolome Murillo 1668

For, this day, is born to you a Saviour, who is Christ the Lord, in the city of David. And this shall be a sign unto you. You shall find the infant wrapped in swaddling clothes, and laid in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly army, praising God, and saying: Glory to God in the highest; and on earth peace to men of good will. And it came to pass, after the angels departed from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another: Let us go over to Bethlehem, and let us see this word that is come to pass, which the Lord hath shown to us.

Luke 2:11


Harland and I wish a most Blessed Christmas to you and yours!

Cattle, corn, wheat, beans, mud, snow, ice, and drought. Plenty of fresh air and quiet. Our life is sometimes heartbreaking, sometimes joyous, but never boring.

    I didn’t get a chance to wish you two a Merry Christmas, but here you are. “Merry Christmas”. I wish to tell you how much I appreciate your blog. You have taught me so much about my home state of KS. You have also given us so many fantastic recipes and I thank you for that, too. I tried the no-knead herb bread and my kids loved it on Christmas. One question, though, can you double or triple the recipe without issues arising? Again, thanks for all you do for us on your blog. Also, the love between you and Harland remind us that there are good men and women left in this world. I have been a widow for 11 yrs and have wondered…..LOL. Again Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

      Thank you so much for your kind words DeeKnitter. Hope you had a wonderful Christmas too. With regards to the bread recipe, I’ve often doubled bread recipes with no problems. I’m sure you could triple it as well with no issues.
      Happy New Year!
