Advent Day 13

Friday the 13th has some roots in Christianity.  Friday is unlucky because that was the day Christ was crucified.  13 is unlucky because there were 13 at the last supper, the 13th member was Judas who betrayed Christ.

Whatever, Friday the 13th is not unlucky during Advent when the holiness of the season makes every day sacred and therefore not unlucky.

I want to walk peacefully on earth, kissing the earth with my feet. ~ Thich Nhat Nanh

How wonderful to kiss the earth with each step that we take.

How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of the one who brings news of peace, who announces good things, who announces salvation, who says to Zion, "Your God reigns!" ~ Isaiah 52:7 (International Standard Version)

What's up with all the talk about feet?  Spread peace wherever you go and you will have beautiful feet.

Lord, give me beautiful feet and remind me to kiss the earth with them.
