Merry Christmas!

Nativity, by He Qi, China (www.heqigallery.com)

No bloviating today. Just a simple wish for God’s blessings on you and your loved ones, and a little poem from C.S. Lewis:

THE NATIVITY

Among the oxen (like an ox I’m slow)
I see a glory in the stable grow
Which, with the ox’s dullness might at length
Give me an ox’s strength.

Among the asses (stubborn I as they)
I see my Saviour where I looked for hay;
So may my beastlike folly learn at least
The patience of a beast.

Among the sheep (I like a sheep have strayed)
I watch the manger where my Lord is laid;
Oh that my baa-ing nature would win thence
Some woolly innocence!
