Lo, the star, which they had seen in the East, went on before them. Matthew 2.9
The Wise Men followed the star because they hoped it would lead them to where they wanted to go. It did. The star led them to Jesus, the Savior of the world. We have hope in Jesus. Let us always follow Him!
PRAYER: O Jesus, our bright and shining star, lead us to eternal life. Amen.
The birth of Jesus is the sunrise in the Bible. — Henry van Dyke
When my eyes opened this morning, my first thought was that my 24 year old son is in Wales – his first Christmas away from home. He texted me to say, “Merry Christmas” and mentioned that it was weird not being here with the family.
So, as Chris and I lay in bed, he found “A Child’s Christmas In Wales” by Dylan Thomas” on his Blackberry and read me the entire story. It’s a classic – rich in description and imagery.
As my husband read this poem to me, I felt more at ease…in an odd way,it comforted me….but I will still miss Drew when our family and friends sit down to enjoy Christmas dinner tonight.
I texted Drew after the reading – my intelligent, someday lawyer-to-be son – and this was our conversation.
Chris read me “A Boy’s Christmas in Wales” in honor of you this morning.
A classic story by Dylan Thomas, Drew….
So, that was special. 🙂
When your day slows down and your feet are up, take a few minutes and read or listen to this great story.
