Heaven sent a covering for all the world last night.

Was it red?  Was it orange? (Imagine such a sight. K)

Was it yellow, green, blue?  What would these hues do?

Was it purple?  Was the covering indigo?  No.

Heaven’s cover had all those colors – it was “light.” – eab, 12/5/06

“In the Bleak Midwinter”     (stanza 2,3,5)

Our God, Heaven cannot hold Him, nor earth sustain;
Heaven and earth shall flee away when He comes to reign.
In the bleak midwinter a stable place sufficed
The Lord God Almighty, Jesus Christ.

Enough for Him, whom cherubim, worship night and day,
Breastful of milk, and a mangerful of hay;
Enough for Him, whom angels fall before,
The ox and ass and camel which adore.

What can I give Him, poor as I am?
If I were a shepherd, I would bring a lamb;
If I were a Wise Man, I would do my part;
Yet what I can I give Him: give my heart.

Christina Rosetti, sister to Dante Rosetti, was born this date in London.  She died 12/29/1894 also in London.   See “Love Came Down at Christmas” and “None Other Lamb”
