Good day to all who are visiting Leisure Lane today,
A few years back I posted my Christmas tale of The Empty, Little Stocking. That post has been taken down, but I am in the process of having the tale printed as a booklet. I’ve been working on the sketch for the cover design, and so far have come up with the above. Now the decision which stocking to use on the cover. But either way I think I will be using both in some way. I just wanted to share with you what I’ve been up to the last couple of days.
The synopsis of the story is as follows:
A little, Christmas stocking, disappointed in Christmas’ past, longs to be filled with the wonderful things that other stockings are filled with. As the light from the dying embers casts its last glow upon the Christ child in the crèche, the little stocking begins a humble request. He asks God to fill him with wonderful things, too. But as midnight approaches the little stocking’s prospects seem as dim as ever.
On this special Christmas Eve, however, the empty, little Christmas stocking discovers gifts more wonderful than he could possibly imagine. A timeless message for every age.
