Frid på jord Peace on earth

This is late -but beautiful.

Annas Art - FärgaregårdsAnna

One of our great Swedish folk singers Sofia Karlsson has written a beautiful song often heard at Christmas time in Sweden. Peace on earth. I like it. You can read a translation of the lyrics below.

Text.- Olivia Blyberg, Sofia Karlsson. Musik: Sofia Karlsson.

I stjärnfull natt de ljöd så klart

I am a mother of 16 children and grandchildren. Some of them are by blood and the rest by heart. I was a foster mom for a few years and the children I cared for during that time have mostly stayed with me through the years. I love to write, read, dance, paint, and play with my animals. I enjoy dressage riding and just being in the barn. My words are my gift, as they allow you to know me as I really am. Thanks for joining me on this ride of life!
