"the weary world rejoices, for yonder breaks a new and glorious morn!
fall on your knees! oh hear the angel voices!
oh night divine, oh night when Christ was born!"
i was just about to turn off the computer for the night.. i had been trying desperately to update the blog, with posts that will fill the next week since i am so behind on life... but i, of course, did a quick check of "blog headlines" and ended up on a blog i have never seen before doing A LOT of thinking. thinking about a wonderful Father who loves me more than i will ever, ever deserve and why i, given that love, continue to fail Him daily (probably something i should keep in mind when parenting...).
anyway o holy night popped into my head right at the spot i quoted above and i so startlingly am reminded to stop all the craziness i constantly let life become and slow down to "let all within us praise His holy name". i needed this reminder. wishing you a most meaningful Christmas.
