At times like these, I need to go macro. I need to zoom in and be thankful for the things that are good in my everyday.
|Pleasing collision of patterns in our new bathroom floor tiles|
|The abundant fireworky explosion of fuschias on the fence|
|New bags for The Spire Market nestling on the hatstand|
|The fat roundness of delicious dumplings being steamed on my stove.|
The verse and questions in today's Bible Society live light reading:
I hadn't thought much about the angels in the Christmas story before, other than in their role as messengers. And in depictions, they tend to be portrayed in that distant, too-bright, formal kind of manner; well it would have been scary, true. But thinking about how they celebrate in heaven, and how they long to look into God's word, how joyful and excited they must have been to give this good news of Jesus' birth to the people!
I'm tired and a little heartsore. But there are good things to see and think about, all around.
