My gift to you today: Reading, reflections, and journal exercises for the First Day of Christmas.
Here's a quote from Charles H. Spurgeon (1834-1892) that seems to echo Augustine's sense of Christmas:
"Infinite, and an infant. Eternal, and yet born of a woman. Almighty, and yet hanging on a woman's breast. Supporting a universe, and yet needing to be carried in a mother's arms. King of angels, and yet the reputed son of Joseph. Heir of all things, and yet the carpenter's despised son. Oh, the wonder of Christmas."
