my true love sent to me,
7 swans a-swimming
I wonder if these were black or white. I choose white. A black swan feels so, well, dark (I crack myself up). Actually, there's an excellent book titled "The Black Swan" . You should read it. No, it has nothing to do with the movie starring Natalie Portman.
It's also a recipe; a take on the Floating Island meringue dessert. Okay, I think I'm getting off track here.
The nicest interpretation, other than back in the 16th century the only things those ladies wanted was livestock and food for Christmas, is that they could stand for the seven gifts of the Holy Spirit.
Now for your devotional for the 7th Day of Christmas!
