a touch more modern rendering of the song of Simeon…by no less a prophet than Mike Scott.
we are spending this day putting away the last of the Christmas decorations (except a string of lights in the dining room and all of our Jesse Tree ornaments. they’ll stay until Lent begins). Mabel said the house looked naked! earlier, the children colored this cute coloring page. we also ate oatmeal pancakes to remember God’s goodness in the land of the living. tonight we will fill the place with candlelight as we give thanks for the Light of the world.
