A Christmas Carol

God bless us, every one. -A Christmas Carol, Charles Dickens

By Carter.

This illustrated gift from Emily McDowell swelled up a giant lump in my throat. It’s been a week of sadness in the midst of a season of expectation, and these words ring especially true.

Do you remember this moment in A Christmas Carol? A fragile Tiny Tim exclaims this with gusto and thanks for the smallest of things. That seed of love was planted in the heart of a man, where only coldness and sorrow occupied it before.

Beautiful, right? It’s a plea and a hope for all of us this year.

P.S. — This series — illustrated quotes from children’s books — is a collaboration between Emily McDowell and myself. You can find the whole series here.

  1. I really love your website.. Great colors & theme. Did
    you develop this website yourself? Please reply back as I’m planning to create my own website and want to find out where you got this from or what the theme is called. Cheers!

  2. Hey there would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with? I’m planning to
    start my own blog soon but I’m having a difficult time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique.

    P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I
    had to ask!

  11. Howdy this is somewhat of off topic but I was
    wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding knowledge so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  12. An impressive share! I have just forwarded this onto
    a colleague who had been conducting a little homework on this.
    And he in fact ordered me dinner simply because I found it for him…
    lol. So let me reword this…. Thanks for the meal!!
    But yeah, thanks for spending some time to talk
    about this issue here on your web page.

  14. Doess your site have a contact page? I’m having a tough time locating it
    but, I’d like to send you an e-mail. I’ve got some recommendations
    for your blog you might be interested in hearing. Either
    way, great site and I look forward to seeing it expand over time.

  15. My partner and I stumbled over here by a different web
    address and thought I might check things out. I like what I see so i am
    just following you. Look forward to finding out about your web page again.

  16. Terrific article! That is the type of information that should be shared around the net.
    Disgrace on Google for no longer positioning this post
    higher! Come on over and seek advice from my web
    site . Thanks =)

  17. When I initially commented I seem to have clicked the
    -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now whenever a comment is added I receive four
    emails with the same comment. There has to be
    a way you can remove me from that service? Cheers!

  18. Hello are using WordPress forr your site platform?
    I’m new to the blog world but I’m trying
    to get started and create my own. Do you require any coding expertise to make your own blog?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  19. Awesome blog you have here but I was wondering if you knew of any discussion boards that cover the same topics talked about here?
    I’d really love to be a part of online community where I can get advice from other knowledgeable people that share the same interest.
    If you have any suggestions, please let me know. Many thanks!

  20. On the residence page, you will see a search engine like box exactly where you are able to field inside the
    cellular telephone quantity. Performing a reverse
    cell mobile phone lookup is less complicated done and can just take just a couple of minutes
    to be carried out. The extremely first of these sources is the Government.

  21. Heya i’m for the first time here. I found this board and
    I find It really helpful & it helped me out much.
    I’m hoping to provide something again and aid others
    like you helped me.

  22. Hey, I think your website might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your website in Opera, it looks fine but when opening
    in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, great blog!

  23. Appreciating the hard work you put into your website and in depth information you present.

    It’s good to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t
    the same old rehashed information. Excellent read!
    I’ve saved your site and I’m including your RSS feeds
    to my Google account.

  24. Do you have a spam problem on this site; I also am a blogger, and I was wanting to know your situation; many of
    us have created some nice procedures and we are looking to swap methods with other folks, why
    not shoot me an e-mail if interested.

  25. It’s actually a cool and useful piece of information. I’m glad that you just shared this helpful info with us.

    Please keep us up to date like this. Thanks for sharing.

  26. I got this web page from my pal who shared with me
    about this web page and at the moment this time I am visiting this web site
    and reading very informative posts at this time.

  27. Do you mind if I quote a few of your posts as
    long as I provide credit and sources back to your
    website? My blog site is in the exact same area of interest as yours and
    my users would definitely benefit from a lot of the information
    you provide here. Please let me know if this ok with you. Regards!

  28. If flooding is caused by dirty water, which is water contaminated by pathogens, sewage and chemical waste, the items it comes in contact with must be professionally cleaned and sanitized
    or tossed altogether. The initial step in the successful reconstruction of damage of water after a
    flood in the house is to obtain a dehumidifier and a number of followers.
    Water damage restoration technicians in Houston work to
    get homes back to normal as much as possible.

  29. I still remember one of the headlines in a newspaper where they were advertising the arrival of the cell-phone:
    You’ll be able to phone from your shopping trolley in the grocery store.

    When it comes to the printing speed, it makes them faster than
    ink jet printers. Furthermore, this growth of the technological market is apparently affected by, among other elements from technical trends predicted for 2014, the innovative idea of the enterprise,
    constant training, electronic behavior and outsourcing.

  30. Hello There. I found your blog using msn. This is
    a very well written article. I’ll be sure to bookmark it and
    come back to read more of your useful info. Thanks for the
    post. I’ll definitely return.

  31. The product is a simple treatment that is applied once daily into
    the affected aspects of skin. Quite simply, the phrase
    Halloween arrived from All Saints Day. We hope that you all be experiencing the joy and satisfaction of having younger, clearer and
    more radiant looking skin and all the benefits that naturally come with it with ARYU-DEVA an anti aging
    skin cream.

  32. It was perhaps the best strategy for technology transfer and profits as well.
    Most companies do not do them and of those who advertise they do, many do not consistently show
    up to do them. If a company doesn’t have the equipment of standard industrial grade,
    why would you expanse your money on the work which can be done by yourself.

  33. It is reɑlly a nice annd usefսl piece oof informɑtion. I am glad that
    ƴou simply shared this useful information with us. Please stay us up to date like this.
