I know the first verse of lots of Christmas carols, but I'm pretty shaky on further verses. This year,
I am going to pay more attention to verses 2 and beyond.
It Came Upon the Midnight Clear
Still through the cloven skies they come,
With peaceful wings unfurled,
And still their heav'nly music floats
O'er all the weary world:
Above its sad and lowly plains
They bend on hovering wings:
And ever o'er its Babel sounds
The blessed angels sing.
Edmund Sears, 1849
Another thought on Advent: it is the beginning of Advent-ure.
Definition of adventure: a bold and difficult undertaking involving unknown risks and danger.
(Gage Canadian Dictionary)
A pretty good definition of the Christian life. Good thing, we're not alone :)
