Three cross blowing sands
to greet a king yet unborn,
star lost in the haze.
Yesterday was the first day of Advent, a time of preparation for a big celebration in the Christian calendar. Like the wise Travelers who journeyed far to greet a new king, we face dangers and distractions on the route to the Nativity and Epiphany. I pray that even in the glare of the lights, our minds will still hold an image guiding us to our destinations.
