1.6.13 Epiphany … and Downton Abbey …

epiphany: One friend noted that she had never thought about the wise men/three kings sleeping on their journey.  I realize that I had never thought of it either.  God rest ye merry gentlemen!

On the 12th day of Christmas my true love sent to me Twelve Drummers Drumming. The Twelve points in the Apostles’ Creed. Will comment them below (they are too big to fit in a single post).

…  Epiphany, which means “to show” or “to make known” or even “to reveal.” We remember the coming of the wise men bringing gifts to visit the Christ child, who by so doing “reveal” Jesus to the world as Lord and King. Tonight is the twelfth night. This is an occasion for feasting, including the baking of a special King’s Cake as part of the festivities of Epiphany.

…  On this day we as the body of Christ are reminded of our mission to seek to as best we can to be used by God to “reveal” Jesus to the world as Lord and King. With this we end the 12 days of Christmas and celebration of the Christmas/Advent season. Next year we will start again. Hope this was a blessing to you. God bless!

for EPIPHANY! The three kings must have been uncomfortable in the bed, wearing their crowns–but then, that’s how the artist Gislebertus shows us that they are kings! The embroidered blanket seems to move in harmony with the face, halo, sleeves and wing of the angel in one graceful, circular movement. It is as though the angel has slipped suddenly and silently in. With one hand he points to the star which will guide them safely home. With the other he touches one of the kings, who opens his eyes. The angel, despite his broken nose, still conveys a wonderful sense of gentleness.

RIP, Wilmette:  Loved Lad & lassie when we lived in Wilmette.  Rest in peace, Bill Evans.

“He was fair and honest and kind,” Mimi Evans said Jan. 2. “He would keep the store open for people when they needed it. He extended sales for people who needed it, even when there was really no sale. He thought that was important.”

LOL, short films:  Honk if you love someone … 🙂

Check out this amazing short film — about one man’s quest to make a city smile — which premiered today. If it doesn’t make your day, I’ll give you your money back. (Full disclosure: I know the filmmaker).
