The Crib

Sounds-day is for listening/viewing devotional items from and for all ages and traditions.

Yesterday we learned about the festival of the Southern Americas which pays attention to the journey of the expectant family and the finding of a place to lie. Leads right into a true classic!

Feliz Navidad!

Hari OM

Story-day is for cultural exploration, puraanas and parables and finding out about leading lights in spiritual philosophy.

Have you heard of the festival known as Posadas Navidenas? It has to be said, this was unknown here until this month! As it is specific to the South and Middle American region, its spread has been, perhaps, limited. However, now that a large number of people of Hispanic origin are living in the wider Americas, it is gradually becoming more known.

It begins on the 16th of December and goes through to Christmas Eve, the 24th. The link in the name will take you to a page explaining its origin and purpose; it certainly would add to the joy of the festival, one can't help thinking!


Hari OM
'Freedays' are the 'gather our thoughts' days; Q&As; a general review of the week so far…

Advent prayers can be anything you wish in anticipation of the arrival anew of the Lord Yeshu; mainly it is about refreshing one's own relationship with the higher. The following prayer was found HERE.

Dear Heavenly Father,
Help me to hear your voice.
Touch me once again.
Give me the courage to be your beloved.
Give me the courage to choose joy.
I need you now this Christmas.
Be born in me again. Today.

In Jesus' name, Amen.
