Tenth Day of Advent

Last year I found a neat little book of Advent readings that I got to use this year.

The Handel’s Messiah Family Advent Reader contains insightful readings based on the libretto of Messiah. A listening CD of vignettes from Messiah accompanies the book with tracts coordinated to the reading. What a fine way to enjoy superb music that heightens the message of the words announcing the birth of the Lord.

Throughout the day, the complete first part, the Christmas part of Messiah
will fill the house as the wood fire warms, the candle scents, kitties snuggle with me and a cup of tea.

We've used this at some point in the past and picked up again this year. The CD stays in the player and it provides background music for us in the morning. It is truly a wonderful book.
