Christmas Alphabet: Q is for Quiet

December 14, 2011

Q is for Quiet, something not seen in abundance during this season. But come Christmas Eve, “when we’re all settled down for a long winter’s nap,” calm settles over the house & there is quiet.


Remember to cultivate silence in your holiday season, with quiet reflection upon the Reason for the Season.

Enjoy “Silent Night.”
