Merry Christmas!

"Led by the light of faith serenely beaming,
with glowing hearts by His cradle we stand."

it's reindeer...

This morning I was listening to a radio station that plays only Christmas music during the month of December, and there was a well-known version of "Here Comes Santa Claus" playing. I couldn't help but cringe every time the singer reprised, "Vixen and Blitzen and all his reindeers are pulling on the reins..."

It's reindeer, people, not reindeers.

O Christmas Tree

My roommate and I got our tree today--a nice 6-foot Douglas fir. He smells heavenly. I kinda want to sleep on the living room floor tonight just so I can breathe it in.

Tomorrow night...ornaments!

"You called, you cried, you shattered my deafness. You sparkled, you blazed, you drove away my blindness. You shed your fragrance, and I drew in my breath, and I pant for you. I tasted and now I hunger and thirst. You touched me and now I burn with longing for your peace."
~ St. Augustine~

I love Augustine. His writings always invoke inspiration and awe.
