Mosaic Monday - Peace and Joy

We had a Memorial Service for my Dad on Saturday.
With Christmas only a week away,
 my brothers and I decided to use that theme for the flowers.
Winter greenery with pinecones accented with red and white flowers.


We have had so much snow,
 turning the garden into a magical place,
 with snow sparkling in the sun
 or christmas lights twinkling under the snow in the darkness.

I am Linking with Little Red House for Mosaic Monday,
 please drop in and visit those on the list.

Wishing you Peace and Joy
this Holiday Season!

Hi Jen,
Your mosaic is just stunning; love it!
We don't have any snow here yet which is just fine with me. The longer it holds off, the better for my hubby and my son because they both have to work in it!
I'm sure the Memorial service held for your Dad was beautiful; again my deepest sympathies to you and your family.

Christmas blessings,
Sandi

Dear Jen, so sorry to hear about your Dad. My heartfelt condolences to you and yours for your loss. I'm only just catching up with your posts now and realise it might be a tough festive season for you this year.

I do so love your mosaic ... and the lovely idea of using Christmas greenery, pinecones with red and white flowers for your Dad's Memorial Service. Look after yourself and enjoy time with your family over these holidays.

I am so sorry to hear about your father. What a sad Christmas it will be without him. My father-in-law died in the last couple of weeks also, so I understand.
Wishing you peace and the company of those you love at Christmas.
And thankyou for your lovely mosaic.

My sympathies on the loss of your Dad. Your tribute is just beautiful.

LDH said...

Sorry about the loss of your dad. This mosaic is a sweet collection of photos as you remember him. The red, white and greenery looks so nice!

Yesterday I was at a funeral with my mom for someone who was her friend for 80+ years. Last night she called to tell me her sister passed away. She is sad. My mom is one of 11 children. All seven brothers have died and now the first of the 4 sisters.

Thinking of you, sweet blogging friend!
Kindly, Lorraine
