This christmas we were planning to go the christmas market in strasbourg between christmas and new year while Jeff is on holiday. But again the authorities decided to close it on the 24 because of the expense of  watching the markets, I have heard there are an extra 700 security staff at the moment. Which means we miss it again this year. What is the world coming to. I will not let them intimidate me, I will be choosing another christmas market. If we stay at home they win as that is what they want. We decided to go to a closer market in Metz and spend a couple of nights there so we can fully enjoy it. We will be taking Phoebe with us and to make it easier for her we bought a lovely dog carrier. Last year in brussels we had to keep picking her up as it was crowded and she was getting tired. Here you can see Jeff  and my friend testing it to see the fit was good. She seems quite contented. And Jeff will love all the ladies coming up to hime and petting the dog.

Good to see a post from you dear friend, are you getting inky at all and crafting... enjoy the markets it is indeed sad to think that such sad things happen in the world through the wickedness of man. God created us with free choice and sad indeed that others suffer as result of others make bad choices. I pray that they turn to the Lird through such suffering .. God knows what it is to suffer He gave His only Son at Christmas time many years ago, freely gave that we might live through faith in Him
One day there will be peace on earth in the true sense of the word, what a day that will be.
I love your dog carrier fir Phoebe, what a brilliant idea, and what a cutie must make folks smile as they pass by.
Blessings upon you as we remember Jesus' birthday and a healthy 2017.
