Thoughts on Epiphany 

By Roselea Nellis 


We know there was a special star
That led the Wise Men on their way,
Guiding them directly
To where the Christ child lay.
Surely others saw this star,
This light, so brightly beaming,
I wonder what they thought,
How many knew its meaning?
Why did Herod make inquiry?
Could he not see the star?
He was closer in proximity
Than the Wise Men from afar.
Could it be, when Herod saw
That bright star in the skies,
He saw, but yet its meaning
Was hidden from his eyes?
I pray the Lord will let me see
And understand His ways,
An epiphany that is my own
As I live out my days.
