"and man at war with man hears not
the Love song which they bring.
oh, hush the noise, ye men of strife,
and hear the angels sing."
[from "It Came Upon a Midnight Clear"]

This year's favorite half-verse of a Christmas song. Makes me think about the too-loud noises that are keeping me from hearing things like

"Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people."


"Glory to God in the highest,
and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests."

Here's to trying to be quieter...
