“On the sixth day Of Christmas, my true love gave to me six geese a-laying.” – Frederic Austin

Warm, the days of summer keep their dwelling

In my state of mind, while breezing past.

Wild, the geese fly, swarming to their new homes;

Will they find a resting place at last —

Only to lift up their wings in seasons

Different than the calm and peaceful heat?

Water cooling off and cleansing their nerves,

Until cold remains, and they take leave.

Was I made to walk this world and wander?

Am I to be the geese I ponder?

Kelley Porterfield

Belonging might be the heart’s fondest desire, to have a place and a purpose.

The sixth day of Christmas celebrates adoption into the family of God for those who have accepted Christ. As brothers and sisters, as sons and daughters, we can finally rest, knowing we belong to our Heavenly Father, and in that, we inherit brothers and sisters all over the world.

St. Egwin of Worcester became the emblematic saint for the sixth day of Christmas because he protected and defended orphans and widows.

Celebrate the sixth day of Christmas by reaching out to someone who might need community love or a better sense of belonging.

Have them over for this delightful meal of duck (or goose) breast, charred bok choy, and sweet potato noodles with special Hoisin sauce.
