Advent Snowglobes (Day 19)

(I was a little too distracted yesterday.)

What you expected something clever and profound today?? Not going to happen! This Yoda Claus was given to me in 2007. For some strange reason it plays "Let It Snow," rather than STAR WARS music. I could fill this post with Yoda-isms and stretch it to Advent, but no. It's enough to jut share this beautiful Jeremiah text, which is God speaking directly to us, eight days before Christmas: "The days are surely coming, says the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and the house of Judah. It will not be like the covenant that I made with their ancestors when I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt—a covenant that they broke, though I was their husband, says the Lord. But this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the Lord: I will put my law within them, and I will write it on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. No longer shall they teach one another, or say to each other, ‘Know the Lord’, for they shall all know me, from the least of them to the greatest, says the Lord; for I will forgive their iniquity, and remember their sin no more" (Jeremiah 31:-34).
