we saw HIS star

today on the traditional feast of the epiphany we made and wore crowns like kings,
donned capes and rings like kings.
we ate like kings. we gazed in the sky,
searching near and far for the star.
and in the end we found it. we saw HIS star.
and beneath it was HIM, the real KING of KINGS.
wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying out in the cold.
we stopped and adored, gave Him frankincense, myrrh and gold.
and then we brought Him inside,
we read Him a story, His story and He lit up our living room,
as only the TRUE LIGHT of the world could.
we hope you saw HIS star too.
