Happy New Year!

 

The nest is the magpie’s;

The dove dwells in it.

This young lady is going to her future home;

A hundred carriages are meeting her.

 

The nest is the magpie’s;

The dove possesses it.

This young lady is going to her future home;

A hundred carriages are escorting her.

 

The nest is the magpie’s;

The dove fills it.

This young lady is going to her future home;

These hundreds of carriages complete her array.

–The Book of Odes, no. 12 (“Que Chao”)

May 2017 be a celebration and triumph of virtue and light!

Keep yourselves in the love of God, waiting for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ, unto life everlasting. And some indeed reprove, being judged:  But others save, pulling them out of the fire. And on others have mercy, in fear, hating also the spotted garment which is carnal.  Now to him who is able to preserve you without sin, and to present you spotless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy, in the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ,  To the only God our Saviour through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory and magnificence, empire and power, before all ages, and now, and for all ages of ages. Amen.  (Jude 21-25)
