Christmas Daybook, 10: Evening

My Christmas daybook for these 12 days of celebrating. We'll be spending Christmastide with the good, old theologian/British mystery writer/ Christmas elf, G.K. Chesterton. Join us, won't you?   (see all Christmas daybook 2016-17 posts here)


 Christmas At Home by Grandma Moses

Christmas At Home by Grandma Moses

 
Here dies another day
During which I have had eyes, ears, hands
And the great world round me;
And with tomorrow begins another.
Why am I allowed two?
— "Evening", G.K. Chesterton: Notebook

Listen: Silent Night by Elizabeth Mitchell


Today's Readings: Psalm 72, Genesis 28:10-22, Hebrews 11:13-22

Prayer for the Day:  

Bright Morning Star,
your light has come,
and the birth of Jesus
has overwhelmed us with joy.
Like the magi of long ago,
may we be drawn to you
and offer you such gifts as we are able. Amen.
— Revised Common Lectionary Prayers, 2002
