The Friday Clive




Among the ox (like an ox I'm slow)
I see a glory in the stable grow
Which, with the ox's dullness might at length
Give me an ox's strength.

Among the asses (stubborn I as they)
I see my Savior where I looked for hay;
So may my beastlike folly learn at least
The patience of a beast.

Among the sheep (I like a sheep have strayed)
I watch the manger where my Lord is laid;
Oh that my baa-ing nature would thence
Some woolly innocence!

p. 408 of The Quotable Lewis is a favorite of ours, "God loves us; not because we are loveable but because He is love, not because he needs to receive but because He delights to give."

And His best gift--our Lord and Savior Jesus the Christ!

Keeping you in my prayers, jep
