Epiphany Approaches

Somewhere, in a distant land under different skies, wise men study the stars:

The rest of us wait for more obvious messages, the angel choirs, the clear message, "Go and See":

Some of us may understand the urgency already:

The largest mass migration since World War II has been underway for months, brutal leaders transforming citizens into refugees.

Those of us lucky to enjoy stability wait for the Christmas flowers to bloom.

We know that the best gifts may be the unexpected ones.

And we have all been given the best gift of all.
