Let the spirit fill the air

I love nativities for their beauty and symbolism. This one is from an unknown Austrian artist ca 1400. Note the two young midwives and ox and ass, warming the manger with their breath….

Ronald Kauffman,
Sing a Joyful Song of Christmas
Gloria, gloria, hallelujah,

in excelsis Deo, gloria.

Gloria, gloria, hallelujah,

Christ the Lord is born.

Sing a joyful song of Christmas
Let the spirit fill the air
Peace on earth, goodwill to men,
Christ the Lord is born.

About Michaela

I am a wanderer and a wonderer, like you are. I love our journey and to walk in the company of friends – to learn, experience, share, laugh, cry and above all I simply love this marvelous, magical, mysterious life. I have no plan (cannot believe I am saying this) and my only intention is to be truthful to myself and others.
