Toward Epiphany

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.

This painting by Alvaro Ibañez called “Shine the Infant Light” asks the question, “Who gave you your gifts?”
