Beauty No. 19

We have started a Youtube chanel! I got a ukulele for Christams and I am still learning, but my husband plays very well. Here is one of our first videos!


I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.

I thought how, as the day had come,
The belfries of all Christendom
Had rolled along th'unbroken song
Of peace on earth, good will to men.

And in despair I bowed my head:
'There is no peace on earth, ' I said
'For hate is strong, and mocks the song
Of peace on earth, good will to men.'

Then pealed the bells more loud and deep:
'God is not dead, nor doth He sleep;
The wrong shall fail, the right prevail,
With peace on earth, good will to men.'

Till, ringing, singing on its way,
The world revolved from night to day
A voice, a chime, a chant sublime,
Of peace on earth, good will to men.

Beauty No.15

Little baby Snow Leopard Wednesday!
 
Today in M√ľnster it is snowing, a lot. So I thought a good animal for today would be the snow leopard.
 
Here are some facts about the snow leopard:
Their feet act as natural snowshoes.
They can jump as far as 50 feet in one jump.
They can kill an animal three times their weight.
Sadly, there are only a recorded 6,000 left on the planet.
 





 
 
 
Here are some super cute videos to make your day better!

Have a beautiful day!
