Just coming up for air here after attending to business at the Post Office, - all the parcels that have many miles to travel, and the Christmas letters, duly stamped and posted.

Somehow the hurry and scurry has interfered with a proper observance of Advent, and so I went searching for a reminder.....and this is what I found.

I hope it touches you in the same way it touches me, - Words are by John Cennick, Collection of Sacred Hymns, 1752; republished and altered by Charles Wesley, 1758, and Martin Madan, 1760. The tune is Helmsley - one of my favourites.

This particular performance involves "arr. Edward Miller Interludes: Samuel Wesley Peter Holman Psalmody The Parley of Instruments".

Lovely interlude to experience with you this morning, Thank you. I also like the quotes of Lin Yutang and Eudora Welty on your sidebar, so agree with taking time for what's "really" important, along with the matters that need to be done.
Have a joyful Christmas!
