tocoming (day 29)

 
Today is the beginning of Advent, what the Anglo-Saxons called Christ’s tocoming. I’m thankful for this season, thankful for its beauty and mystery, and thankful that I get to spend it with Henry and Michael. 

And I was thankful, this morning, to have a chance to nerdily (autocorrect changed that to merrily, which is also true) brush up on my Old English. If you’d like, you can read Ælfric’s Advent sermon here
