Not Even a Pretty Bow
It’s Christmas. Some people probably got unwrapped gifts ... as you can see, I got an ungifted wrap. I fell coming out of a store in Concordia when a leaky gutter led to a frozen patch that wasn’t visible at my angle of approach. Initially, the little bump on my knee and my pride hurt more than did my wrist or hand. My concern involved my clothing more than my bones and muscles. I landed almost flat on stomach and chest and my black clergy shirt was light brown and grey from the salt and dirt on the parking lot. Only later, after the children’s program, did any swelling or increased pain evidence themselves.
We came back home and I cooked spaghetti while stockings were hung
We got back here after midnight. Now it’s almost 0300 hours. Santa and Mrs. Claus stuffed the stockings and set up the altar for the Supper. The Bearded One is still trying to wind down and get a few hours of sleep before the Carol Communion Service. Since I’m awake, I thought I would post my Christmas column, show you my picture, and wish you a a blessed Feast of the Nativity’ because He’s the Gift always worth receiving.
