‘A bayberry candle, burned to the socket,
Brings luck to the home and gold to the pocket.’
I have no idea from where this proverb came, but the Nyes burn their candle every year, and this year they gave us our own. (Mrs. Nye even had to lend me a taper candle holder, as I don’t even have one!)
Andrew and I have talked a little of resolutions in the last day or so; always the typical ‘get in shape,’ or ‘finish more house projects,’ but I’m thinking more big-picture. Daily devotions, moderation, responsible money-spending, relax more, stress less. More blogging. (I actually SAT and watched a three-hour movie with the fam yesterday–progress already on day 1!)
Blessings to you and yours’ in 2014!
