No it's not real fire (though it's hot enough). It's a flame tree in a neighbouring garden that I can see from the bathroom window. Very Christmas ... the anticipation is building.
Luke 1:46-50 (New International Reader's Version)
"My soul gives glory to the Lord.
My spirit delights in God my Savior.
He has taken note of me
even though I am not important.
From now on all people will call me blessed.
The Mighty One has done great things for me.
His name is holy.
He shows his mercy to those who have respect for him,
from parent to child down through the years."
