Inspiring New Year quote to promote hope, peace, love, and encouragement in the days ahead - Hello Lovely Studio. #quotes #newyearquotes #encouragementquotes

I’m holding all of you close as you prepare room in your hearts for the light that’s arriving soon.

Should it become dark before then, try to unclench your hands, to inhale hope and exhale fear as you wait for the dawn. Fear not. Because you see, this is what Christmas means. A love so precious and infinitely good is HERE, is closer than breath, is eager to be received.

Peace to you right where you are.

    I found your blog a few months ago and since then have spent quiet time there every morning before I go to work. I am a teacher, so there isn’t a bunch of dollars to spend on interiors. But I love them! I find such joy and beauty in your pictures and wonderfully written narratives. Thank you. And Merry Christmas.

      I’m grateful for your readership – thanks for taking the time to get acquainted here. I honor teachers so much and tutored students for a decade before I began writing and blogging. Thanks for all you do! Merry Christmas!

    What lovely ideas to start my Christmas 2019 inspiration file 🙂

    Last year I used gathered turkey feathers as a tree topper for my nature inspired tree, (plentifully found) on the golf course where we play. It was a big hit with our guests! 😉

    Have the most beautiful Christmas ever and may your health continue to improve. Be well. Be blessed.

      How cool is a turkey feather topped tree!?! Thank you for the wishes! As I grow older, I am not setting my expectations so high at the holidays – instead I am looking for the small miracles and seeing them everywhere – I have seen a few today! Merry Christmas, friend!
