More snow than in over seventy years.
First ‘snow’ day school closures in over forty years.
Days of snow falling.
Big thick snowy flakes pouring from the sky.
Great memories with friends and the three brothers playing together.
Hours upon hours of creativity and outside snow time.
It has been a monumental Epiphany.
Nope, no epiphany for me today.
Another kind of Epiphany.
We are celebrating the twelfth day after Christmas that symbolizes the three wise men arriving from the East to worship the newborn King, Jesus.
Here’s the boys Epiphany play:
The wise men have spent the last weeks traveling from a faraway
box land arriving in our bookshelf stable in Bethlehem.
We created three ice candles and placed them in our front yard, which is coincidently (or not) to the East of our home. We didn’t realize this was the East until JC pointed it out.
Sexy Neck read about the three Wise Men and we eventually talked about how we both came to know God personally in a private manner.
My beginnings with God began, coincidently, with a writing journal in my bedroom and for Sexy Neck, he came to know God through snow. Another coincidence? Hmmmm….
It was a privilege to celebrate Epiphany today and it is an even larger privilege to know a personal God where snow is the gift of “Epiphany”.
