The First Day of Christmas

Today is the First Day of Christmas!

Now, in the song, on the first day, you get a bird. In a tree. A bird you can't eat, and a tree that produces fruit later.

That makes me think of how one of our greatest hopes from Christmas is that we have a delayed gift, a gift that we long to see realized, our hope of heaven. Jesus came to this earth to live a perfect life as an example, then to die for the sins of mankind. So that we don't have to be eternally separated from God. This is glorious news, and in it is found our hope of heaven.

It's like the pear tree in winter. A hope of the future!

As far as the bird, it doesn't make me think at all...
