… It Snowed!
It actually started last night, so we can officially say
that we had a white Christmas!
And we decided today was the perfect time
for an official “Snow Day.”
A much needed “get the coffee going, stoke the fire,
and stay in your jammies for a while” sort of morning.
And on this wintry morning, I thought I’d share
a bit of December with you…
April the Goat decided to escape last Sunday
as we were heading out early to church.
I think she just wanted her neck scratched.
We had another visit from a little feathered friend.
A hawk was chasing her, and she got confused
and bumped into a window.
Hubby held her for a while, and then settled her onto the woodpile ’til she could gather her senses.
And Christmas came.
This Christkindl is one of my favorite decorations…
During the Protestant Reformation,
Martin Luther began the tradition of a child-like gift giver,
to discourage worship of Saint Nicholas,
and to represent Christ incarnate.
Christkindle eventually became more angelic looking,
but I like this symbolic version.
The boy Jesus… the Lamb of God…holding the Bible.
And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us
and we beheld His glory,
the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,
full of grace and truth.
