Advent Calendar

As I appear to be a day ahead of the rest of Christendom in my poetic Advent calendar, today is a 'day off'!

  1. A well-deserved day off, though! This Advent calendar idea is just the sort of thing blogs were invented for.

  2. Thanks! Recently I've been envisaging the possibility that this blog will end up as all devotional poems and words to hymns. I less and less feel the desire to argue with anybody, even a hypothetical opponent. And I feel more and more the belief that devotion is the best argument. I increasingly suspect that one movement of the heart is worth any amount of intellectual arguments-- though intellectual arguments there must be.

  3. I'll take this as my cue to extend my thanks for your little posts. I haven't had an Advent calendar for many years, though I have memories of them--vivid memories of childhood moments I should include in a purple notebook. Anyway, thanks for the little posts each day! I love this time of year.

    1. Thanks, TMR! I'm pleased at how well they have been received. And Advent memories, I guess, would be particularly suitable for a PURPLE notebook!!
