The bells are ringing in my heart. Can you hear them? No matter your faith, my faith is in my Lord and Savior, and from my heart to yours I wish you peace. I wish you love. Hear the bells this Christmas Day.

Then rang the bells more loud and deep,
God is not dead nor doth he sleep,
The wrong shall fail, the right prevail,
With peace on earth, good will to men!

    Such a lovely sentiment expressed by this, one of my favorite Christmas songs. Peace on Earth, indeed. This would be my Christmas wish for the world. Merry Christmas to you, Charli.

      This beautiful song is based on the poem, “Christmas Bells” by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. He wrote it in 1863, during the Civil War after loosing his wife and learning that his son joined the Union Army without his blessing. From that despair, rose one of the most touching Christmas carols that remains the hope we all long for…world peace. Thank you for stopping by Elf, and Merry Christmas!

    Hi Charli, Thank you so much for the wishes expressed in your message, and the explanation contained in your comment above. Lovely. If we could just all hold hands and make it peace together. 🙂

      Let’s hold onto that vision and hold hands across the blog-o-sphere!

        Reminds me of that Margaret Mead quote: “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed people can change the world.”

        Love that quote! I worked for cooperatives for many years and I saw that quote in action. It takes passion and direction, but results are amazing.
