Last night the children dressed up and brought gifts to the baby in the manger. The part of Mary was gracefully played by Jane the stuffed rabbit! Then we celebrated with a Kings Cake using the fancy bundt pan and a yummy recipe for Snickerdoodle Cake! Now it’s time to start putting away, cleaning up, making room.
This reading year has started off slowly. I’m longing for a nice thick novel to read…any suggestions? I thought I’d share two verses that have caught my imagination of late…especially as I work on the post-Christmas clean up. The first is from Proverbs 14.4 via Mystie from Simply Convivial:
Without oxen a stable stays clean,
but you need a strong ox for a large harvest.
And then from the prophecy of Zechariah:
In that day shall there be upon the bells of the horses, HOLINESS UNTO THE LORD;
and the pots in the LORD’S house shall be like the bowls before the altar.
