…on the eighth day of christmas

On the eighth day of Christmas my true love gave to me eight Maids-a-Milking.

symbolism // The Maids represent the eight Beatitudes, found in the Holy Bible. They are: Blessed are the poor in spirit, blessed are the meek, blessed are they who mourn, blessed are they that hunger and thirst after justice, blessed are the merciful, blessed are the clean of heart, blessed are the peacemakers, and blessed are they that suffer persecution for justice’s sake. The beatitudes are meant to nourish our spirituality and uplift our souls.
