First off, feliz Día de Los Reyes Magos (Three Kings’ Day)* to those of us who celebrate the birth of Jesus. January 6 will always bring back wonderful childhood memories and hold a special place in my heart. May the light of the shining star guide us and gift us with wisdom in every path of life.
And a Happy New Year to all! Different year same craziness? Maybe, but I thank the Lord for allowing me and my loved ones to welcome another one. I know we’re all praying for strength and courage to help us all through whatever 2022 brings our way. Let’s stay hopeful! And grateful!
What are you thankful for today?
Until next Thursday’s post…si Dios quiere.
“So New Year, I have too many hopes in you. I hope you lead me safely to the shore. I hope you can be nice to me, just nice and nothing more. I hope you vanquish this tornado of sores … All I ask for is some peace around.”
“As we begin a new year, let’s discard what was jaded. Let’s put on in its place, the beautiful garments of Faith, Hope and Love.”
*The Three Kings’ Day, also known as the Feast Of The Epiphany, is a Christian festivity that takes place on January 6 and celebrates the birth of Jesus. According to tradition, The Three Wise Men (or Three Kings) arrive in Bethlehem from the Far East to meet the newborn King of the Jews.
Melchior, Caspar, and Balthazar, the names of the Three Kings, bring three symbolic gifts with them to give to Jesus: Gold, frankincense, and myrrh. Since then, this event included in the Gospel of Matthew is celebrated in all Spanish speaking countries around the world.
