Winter Solstice

Today is the shortest day of the year. The sun rose at 8:44 AM and set at 3:36 PM, and at noon the sun was only 30 degrees above the horizon. But there was sun, and we stood facing it like sunflowers. I will be glad to get daylight back. “O come thou Dayspring and cheer…”

I’m making a playlist for the Bible, because I realized I probably have enough songs to tell the narrative from start to finish, and I do, just about. It definitely won’t fit all on one CD so I’m making it long enough to fit two. Right now it’s pretty Andrew Peterson/Sara Groves/Third Day heavy, and I’m lacking songs for the OT Wisdom literature and the Prophets and for the NT Epistles. If you can think of any, please do recommend, and hopefully email the songs over if you have them. (I’d really like “Turn! Turn! Turn!” by The Byrds…)

And in the spirit of the season: Behold, the Child – Christmas Mix
