Merry Christmas 2013 - Happy New Year 2014

I will go in to see the king.
-Esther 4:16

We wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Thanks for reading - see you back here in the new year. We leave you with images of one of the sweetest little southern chapels we know; the chapel at Palmetto Bluff... simple, solitary, moss-draped. The coastal breeze will find you here and keep you. 

"In the silence of a midwinter dusk, there is far off in the deeps of it somewhere a sound so faint that for all you can tell it may be only the sound of the silence itself.  You hold your breath to listen.  You walk up the steps to the front door.  The empty windows at either side of it tell you nothing, or almost nothing.  For a second you catch a whiff in the air of some fragrance that reminds you of a place you've never been and a time you have no words for.  You are aware of the beating of your heart.  The extraordinary thing that is about to happen is matched only by the extraordinary moment just before it happens.  Advent is the name of that moment."
-Frederick Buechner
