Peace on earth
Peace on earth..... seems to be a good thing to wish for at the start of another New Year. Though in my photo, the dove seems to have got into a tangle with the floral decoration, which is perhaps not the best omen! Certainly peace on earth seems as far away as ever. But I like to think we bloggers are doing our bit to foster friendly relations across the globe. I dip into a lot of blogs, from all over the world, and I really enjoy getting an insight into people, places, families, festivals, customs and life in general in the many places pictured and represented. I'm looking forward to another year of sharing my little patch of England with you.
I took this photo on Christmas Day in my church, St Peter's Shipley, which as usual was beautifully decorated for the festive season. As someone with not a green finger on my body (!) I can only admire those with the skill to create such lovely and imaginative displays.
May I take this opportunity to wish you all a very happy, prosperous, healthy, fulfilling - and yes, peaceful - 2011.
