Day 358

"Tonight, at the foot of the cradle of Christ, like at the foot of the Cross of Christ, there are no big people- no powerful, no proud. Tonight there are only those who tramp to the manger with nothing; there are only the manger tramps, the men who lay down all the self-made, the women who lay down all the self-sufficiency, the children who lay down all the wants. We, the manger tramps, who kneel where thrones tremble and demons fall and the self-made crumble and the self-righteous weep...All of conquered heaven and grateful earth echo and throb tonight with the heart cry of the God-Child: I did it for love."
~Ann Voskamp, The Greatest Gift.
