God Rest You Merry, Noble Women

advent

 

To my female readers—

Do you feel left out of this Christmas carol?

 

God rest you merry, Gentlemen,
Let nothing you dismay.

Not to worry, God’s got it covered–in the well-known description of the wife of noble character:

Proverbs 31:25 (NIV)
She is clothed with strength and dignity;
she can laugh at the days to come.

Different gender. Same attitude.bless-noble

  1. Another good reading would be Mary’s ‘Magnificat’; a calm and terrible grandeur.
