I knew that C.S. Lewis and I had more in common than our Christianity when he said, "You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me." Welcome to a celebration of faith, tea, and the written word. I'm always engaged in a book, and whether it's one I'm reading or one of the inspirational historical romances I write, there's always a cup of tea close by. Join me in a cup as we chat about faith, our favorite books and the exciting places our reading and writing adventures take us.

O Great Mystery!

This is one of my very favorite pieces: Lauridsen's O Magnum Mysterium. It speaks "Christmas Eve" to me. It pierces my soul and brings me to the manger.

In the busyness of these days, I hope you can take a few minutes to experience His peace. Set aside time with your Bible. Pray. Reflect on what it means that the God of the Universe took on flesh and was born for your sake. That He loves you.

That's something this song helps me remember.

O great mystery,
and wonderful sacrament,
that animals should see the new-born Lord,
lying in a manger!
Blessed is the Virgin whose womb
was worthy to bear
Christ the Lord.

Praying you and yours enjoy a blessed Christmas.

I'll be taking a break until January 5. See you in the New Year!
