Outside the darkness has closed in. The stars arc above us, shining out in the bowl of the sky. Bright lights in the black. Inside the preparations for the feast are underway. Christmas decorations nestle down in their box, tucked up for another year. The crib sits in centre place, the wise men moving closer with each day. Tomorrow they will arrive, ready to worship. A pleasant hour spent painting a new mug for Epiphany. It sits, pride of place, on the kitchen worktop, ready for the Christening. The chalk is ready and waiting to bless the house, and the star-lights are strung out. Tomorrow, all shall be revealed.
Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord from the heavens; praise him in the heights! Praise him, all his angels; praise him, all his host! Praise him, sun and moon; praise him, all you shining stars! Psalm 148:3
