1008. Wise men are not always silent, but they know when to be. ~Unknown

The kings they came from out the south,
All dressed in ermine fine;
They bore Him gold and chrysoprase,
And gifts of precious wine.

The shepherds came from out the north,
Their coats were brown and old;
They brought Him little new-born lambs–
They had not any gold.

The wise men came from out the east,
And they were wrapped in white;
The star that led them all the way
Did glorify the night.

The angels came from heaven high,
And they were clad with wings;
And lo, they brought a joyful song
The host of heaven sings.

The kings they knocked upon the door,
The wise men entered in,
The shepherds followed after them
To hear the song begin.

The angels sang through all the night
Until the rising sun,
But little Jesus fell asleep
Before the song was done.
~Sara Teasdale

For we have seen His star in the east, and are come to worship Him. ~Matthew 2:2  ✝

  1. oh that is so lovely—can’t chat—I’m preparing two birthday meals this evening–both Brenton and Abby–two days a part–a double whammy —a red velvet cake that did not have enough food coloring to turn it velvet is more like brown rust—hummmmm–enough cream cheese frosting should fix that right up 🙂

    • I’m late, I’m late, for a very important date. Can’t stop to say hello, goodbye. I’m late, I’m late, I’m late. So that’s your story, huh?! Ya know, regardless of how red or not red it is, I’ll just bet it’s DELICIOUS and nobody complains about anything.
      I can’t believe you still have tomatoes blooming. I don’t think any are doing that here. We’re still not too cold, but cold enough at times to stop that from happening. Love and hugs to my little white rabbit, 🙂 ❤
