Daily Advent Reflection for Dec. 10

“How silently, how silently the wondrous gift is given!”  (O Little Town of Bethlehem)

Holy Family by Will Humes










I have been afflicted with laryngitis this past week.  It comes and goes, but yesterday, after too much talking, i was struck silent again by the time I went to bed.  It is soooo hard to be quiet when I don’t want to be.  This is a talky talky talky time of year, isn’t it?   My forced silence reminds me that many of our beloved hymns, as beautiful a sound as they make, are in fact about silence and stillness.
