Joyous New Year!

Three strangers arrive where holy love is newly birthed.

Three strangers travel countless miles to behold this incarnation.

Three strangers bow and kneel to an infant; born in a backyard stable,

among straw and animals and shepherds and night.

Three strangers offer gifts for body, soul and being.

Three strangers are overcome.

Three strangers leave; new, restored, awakened and filled.

One child.

One love.

All together

All a part.

 

What strangers have come to you over this past year?

What have they offered?


Something new?


Something hoped for?

Something challenging?

Something you still don’t quite understand?

 

Search and uncover the wisdom they brought you.

Seek holy love in their offering.

See where you are being transformed,

because you opened your heart to a stranger.

 

The deepest and holiest of peace to you all.
