A Tricia Romance painting
She paints in watercolor
lives in Niagara on the Lake, Ontario
a place I know well.
Her originals have been popularized
by thousands of prints
adorning canvases, posters and dishes.
She illustrates themes akin to Norman Rockwell
and an entire career has chronicled the childhoods
of her own children now grown.
A believer in the Christ child
she has captured warmth and pleasure of a family 
on Christmas Eve. 

May you and your loved ones enjoy
the love of personal relationships as well as the reminder
that it was for all of us that Jesus came that first time.

Perhaps pray for Derek Hoare and his two boys whose
Christmas is tempered by sadness
since his daughter Ayn is still not at home
but with the Ministry of Children - UNJUST!
