Favorite Shots: The Holly And The Ivy

I’m taking a little break over Christmas. I’ll be back for real January 9th, and I might throw in a post here and there while I’m gone (like my Christmas shots of Rothenburg?!), but as it stands, this is my last official post before we break.

Which is why I am a little sad about this shot. I know it isn’t very great. I mean, the focus is bad. But look what it is! Holly and ivy! As in “The Holly and The Ivy” English Christmas carol! It is so dang appropriate.

And now, in order to make up for that photo which isn’t technically great but involves a lot of life points for me, I wish to present you with a gift of the sort I am able to give you for our first Christmas together. You and I. Reader and writer. Hi.

This is Christmas in the form of a sheep. I named it Kringle. You’re welcome.

“But you, O Bethlehem Ephrathah, who are too little to be among the clans of Judah, from you shall come forth for me one who is to be ruler in Israel, whose coming forth is from of old, from ancient days. Therefore he shall give them up until the time when she who is in labor has given birth; then the rest of his brothers shall return to the people of Israel. And he shall stand and shepherd his flock in the strength of the Lord, in the majesty of the name of the Lord his God. And they shall dwell secure, for now he shall be great, to the ends of the earth. And he shall be their peace.”

Micah 5: 2 ff
