Christmas Stars

December 23rd


Mary. Later she will become one of the most celebrated woman in history, but tonight she is enjoying just being a mother. What thoughts must be going through her mind as she contemplates this very special baby? It was certainly not an ordinary birth: and yet she senses the commonality of her feelings of love with all mothers of all times and all places. Destiny awaits. But for tonight, He is just a baby for a mother to love.


I've finally finished baking.


The stars took forever.


Now it is time to wrap them all up and give them away.


My daughter took some of these to work today.


I hope these add to people's Christmas cheer.

Oh, I'd hate to unwrap that--it's soooo beautiful! I am the worlds worst wrapper and I appreciate people who have such a talent. I think people who receive those must say "I thank my lucky stars!" (Had to insert that pun). Keep it up--making the world more beautiful, one cookie and curl of ribbon at a time.

What a gorgeous package! It is too pretty to open, but when they see all of the treats inside, I don't think that they'll be able to resist!

You think of every little detail to make anything you touch, special!

Merry Christmas!

Who wouldn't be cheerful with a basket full of your cookies? I think even the Grinch would have professed to loving the Holidays if he had a touch of Jaz to brighten his life!

Wow. I think if you were any more generous, you'd spontaneously transcend into an energy being of pure awesome or something.

I am still just staggered by the gift basket you sent me-- your wrapping is truly gorgeous, and your gifts as sweet as the person behind them. Merry Christmas to you and all you know!
