Pink Saturday

Happy PINK Saturday!!
I have a very special friend on Facebook that I met about a year ago.. his name is Ivan and he lives in Ulricehamn, Sweden. He is retired and enjoys walks around his village and visiting the beautiful lake near his apartment. He spends much of his day meeting other new friends on Facebook and spreading wonderful good cheer and God's blessings. This Christmas he sent me this beautiful Swedish Christmas card.
The poem translates as follows:

Peaceful Holidays
When Christmas day morning, glimmers
I want to go into the stables
The son of God in the world
there rests.

Welcome here, Jesus
with peace and goodwill!
You are the King of the world
Which gives us the light and peace.
What a joy it was to my heart to receive this very special card from my friend.
And then, just today I received another lovely note from Ivan, via email. This included this beautiful photo he took near his home. It just blessed my heart as Im sure it will bless yours! And it is perfect for Pink Saturday!
