Gloria in Excelsis!

Who can know what angels think?
        Pure thought.
        Pure obedience.
        Pure delight.
        Pure worship.
We can but touch these for a moment –
        or rather, imagine that we have.

We marvel that God came to us,
        that Jesus was born;
        and marvel it was and is!

They saw their Lord and Creator leave them,
        saw Him go to Earth to become a man,
        a little lower than angels.

What could this mean?

What wondrous Love they saw when
        Love came down at Christmas; and
What could they do but what they did?
        Fill the whole sky – all the Heavens –
        with their song of worship, praise, and wonder.

RIP Peter O'Toole

Actor Peter O'Toole has died at the age of 81 (who would have thought he'd make it that long?).

This means 2014 won't likely be My Favourite Year.
