Everybody's Got One
A blog. An opinion. An elimination orifice. A dream. An agenda. A past. A hidden talent. A conceptual filter. A cross. A charism (often the same). A task. A wound. A destiny. A lost love. A blind spot. A bad habit. A secret. A passion. A soul ... okay, maybe not everybody ...

An Advent gift  

The psalm for today was one I have read or sung hundreds of times (if not thousands), but I never noticed that the lines
It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in mortals,
It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in princes
were written in a time before we came to believe that princes are inherently even less trustworthy than ordinary mortals are. Which makes the emphasis through repetition and intensification, somewhat less so.

Never saw that before.
