12/21 Advent daybook, 23: He picks up the poor from out of the dirt

My Advent daybook for these 24 days of waiting. Join me, won't you? (see previous Advent daybook 2015 posts here)

A young boy takes a break from his work in this dump collecting scraps to hold his baby sister (Guatemala)
Glen Cooper


Psalm 113: Who can compare with GOD, our God, so majestically enthroned, surveying his magnificent heavens and earth? He picks up the poor from out of the dirt, rescues the wretched who've been thrown out with the trash, seats them among the honored guests, a place of honor among the brightest and best. 

all readings for the day:  Psalm 113; Isaiah 42:14-21; Luke 1:5-25

Purify our conscience, Almighty God, by your daily visitation, that your Son Jesus Christ, at his coming, may find in us a mansion prepared for himself; who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen. (source)
