Families is the theme from Sepia Saturday so I searched for three different sorts of families from yesteryear. All these photos, like the one above, came from Flickr Commons.

This week’s prompt introduced a new freedom in Sepia Saturday’s challenges. In light of the freedom to let our own inspiration guide us, I’ve decided to post vintage New Year’s cards. As I’ve said before I find old greeting cards charming and welcome any excuse to find and share them.

So I offer these while wishing all readers a New Year filled with blessings, grace and mercy. (I’ve borrowed the last two wishes from my friend Spurgeon.)

Sepia Saturday – Christmas

151217-2

Angel-ChristmasCard

Hark the herald angels sing
Glory to the newborn King
Peace on earth and mercy mild
God and sinners reconciled!
Joyful all ye nations rise
Join the triumph of the skies;
With the angelic host proclaim
‘Christ is born in Bethlehem’
Hark! the herald angels sing
Glory to the newborn King.

Christ by highest heaven adored
Christ the everlasting Lord
Late in time behold him come,
Offspring of a virgin’s womb.
Veiled in flesh the Godhead see;
Hail, the incarnate deity,
Pleased in flesh with us to dwell,
Jesus, our Emmanuel!
Hark! the herald angels sing,
Glory to the newborn King.

Hail, the heaven-born Prince of peace!
Hail the Son of righteousness!
Light and life to all he brings,
Risen with healing in his wings.
Mild he lays his glory by,
Born that we no more shall die,
Born to raise us from the earth,
Born to give us second birth.
Hark! the herald angels sing,
Glory to the newborn king.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all visitors.
