a meditation -
creeping into the silence
peace of morning light

peace of morning light -
a hush the colour of dawn
before morning birds

before morning birds
still settled there a greyness -
tick of the clock

tick of the clock -
anticipation fades
a new day brightens

a new day brightens -
may the joy of Christmas near
cause a hearty stir

Fourth Candle
4th CANDLE – (purple) THE ANGEL CANDLE or THE CANDLE OF LOVE – The angels announced the good news of a Savior. “…I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord” (Luke 2:10b-11). God sent his only Son to earth to save us, because he loves us! “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.” (John 3:16-17)

Enjoy a bit of Christmas in Trinidad vibe

When it's time to find a law firm it's very often because of a sudden unexpected event. Perhaps an accident or injury that you need to act on right away.

The specific first time I reached any Chennai escort was through this blog as it were. My associate in office enlightened me regarding this blog. In the wake of going to here and experiencing the profiles on Chennai call young ladies, now I simply select the young lady from the class given there and simply get in touch with them for booking. This has made the procedure simple.
