Advent daybook, 11: He gives power to the faint, rest to the weary

My Advent daybook for these 24 days of waiting. Join me, won't you?


Creche, 1890

Isaiah 40:25-31: He gives power to the faint 

pause in silence 

Matthew 11:28-30: He gives rest to the weary



Unknowable One, we stand before you, hardly daring to look up. We offer you our hearts, and pray that we may, this day and ever, worship you in ways that are true. Forgive us those days when we have worshiped false and faulty images we have shaped. Help our frail sense, that we may apprehend your Presence and your Love. In the everlasting Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen (source)

bring greens into the house

(we haven't found a tree yet, but I saved the greens from flowers
 we brought home from our friend Trey's funeral in November; 
they are gorgeous and still thriving)
