Thou Tellest My Wanderings – Psalm 56

Errands this morning and my routes are the simple country roads.  Grateful to know them and to feel at home.  It took some time.  Then I was reading the Psalms, and my mind connected with Christmas.

“Thou tellest my wanderings:

put thou my tears into thy bottle:

are they not in thy book?”

Psalm 56: 8 (KJV)

there was no room

for them

in the inn.

Luke 2: 7b (KJV)
