Luke 2:
But the angel said to them, "Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. 11Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord. 12This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger."

13Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying,
14"Glory to God in the highest,
and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests."

Peace is not sought by the aggressive, revolutionaries and dangerous people.

The frightened, the meek, the helpless, the wounded, the tired, the starving, the refugees, the persecuted, the motherless, the little ones are praying and waiting for peace.

Thank you Mimi for planning and sustaining interest in this BLOGBLAST FOR PEACE.

Originated by MaryT, check hers for today.

I blog, therefor I am...
Sometimes real life is more important than that of the internet.
This has been such a week.

Ruby treasures have filled my time.
Family, friends, nature, books, art & music are some of God's incredible gifts to me these last days.

Serina ..coming home. Staying up late nights, helping me with blogmusic, shopping and dining out.

Serina is into art noveau and its Austrian cousin "Jugend."Here posing with Norwegian posters from 1900.The hiker girls had a lovely Tuesday in the town upland.
Last days of October, the snow had fallen and disappeared during the night..

Walking in wet moor, we also had to climb fences set up to protect domestict animals on pastures.
Look; snow and red mountain cranberries.
The town's own hiker-place, available to all her inhabitants, the Havaas(Ocean-hill) hut.

Liv reading poetry after the coffee break.
Gunnar, Turid and I attended Kirsten's painting vernissage. She is a multitalented woman with a vigorous energy.
Sunday; time to celebrate Gunnar's brother in law, 69.
Terje had a severe brain stroke 6 years ago, but has fought his way back, in a way none would imagine.
Shrimp sandwiches are his specialty.

View from Turid's kitchen window. If my cellphone cam had been more efficient; I would have been able to present a horde of warblers, plus two white swans in the lake.
I normally compose my Ruby Tuesdays Monday Eve.
I would not dream of reclining the invitation of a girl's night for the sake of a dear hobby.

Turid and Elisabeth, nearest and dearest. They were whistleblowers in a serious case of maltreating mentally retarded 12 years ago. Their courage resulted in new and better laws for the mentally handicapped in all of Norway.
We all bear scares after that bitter fight, but agree we'd do it once more if neccessary..
