The twelfth day of Christmas

Artwork by Leo Boucher.

Happy twelfth day of Christmas!

And Jesus will be born in our lives – a thought Adrian Plass observed in his book of the name. How is Jesus being born into your life in the early days of 2017? During this waning Christmas season?

For me, I hope he is being born into my life as I press forward with my writing projects – an MA essay due on Monday that I’ve been flailing around with and some other writing deadlines in the middle of the month. I hope he is being born into my life in my response to our youngest announcing at 2am that she’s been sick – and again at 3.30am and 6.30am. I hope he is being born into my life as I cling to him for meaning, love, and hope.

May he be born into your life this last day of Christmas, before we celebrate Epiphany.
