Our Monday reading from Handel's Messiah Family Advent Reader talked about the gold that was brought to the baby Jesus. The refrain "and He shall purify" is so true. He wishes for our flexibility, our purity, our willingness to submit
as gold will once it has been purified.
Thankful today for advent, staring me in the face so boldly this year. So ably capable of guiding us to submit to His humble nature.
Handel's words were meant to inspire, uplift, not merely to entertain. And they do.
So while we walk our mortal path, I'm thankful for a school that still has a "3rd Grade Christmas Musical" #366
Rose of Athens production done like no other of
"A Christmas Carol" #367
Cornerstone's production "The Christmas Post" #368
That both my children sat well through each, listening & enjoying, savoring the season- fully. #369
Apologies. Acceptance. #370
Love when Marley says "Mankind was my business."
Convicting, is it not?
#372 That my husband is so moved by this story. that he thinks every man should be made to view/read each year.
Thankful. Not enough, but I'm paying attention moreso to Henry's words during the night, "I dreamed about shapes." and "I love you."
#374 Health, medical care. Fresh water.
#375 my neighbor's garden, green onions. broccoli still from my own.
Restarting the Lifetime Meds #42, and joining others at
A Holy Experience. The faithful.
Won't you join me? Go there. You won't be dissappointed.
