 Carol's Journey

What was the star of Bethlehem that shone so bright
Comet, gathering planets, or exploding star that night

Seen by all or a few and how old was Jesus at magi visit
Insights from links below I pray you will be blessed by it

“Where is He born King of the Jews” the magi declared
“We have seen His star in the East” which they followed
They had travelled from afar to “come to worship Him”
King Herod was troubled asked scribes to answer them

This Bible text implies the star only guided the magi
If it was like a comet, it would be visible to every eye
God has sent supernatural lights other times in history
Article says “visible manifestation of divine majesty”

If King Herod really wanted to worship the holy child
Then why did he order all males two and under killed
Magi came up to two years later, probably much less
Mary’s purification, now in a house, evidences of this

Some may not read my poem until Christmas has past
Just imagine you were there when Magi arrived at last
The celebration of Epiphany is January 6th on Sunday
I will strive to have my greetings sent before that day

My friend, the world did not end the 21st of December
But on the 14th it did for 26 victims of a merciless killer
Let us all keep the families in our prayers in their grief
Always remember life on this earth is short and brief

The Bible says only God knows when Jesus will return
It warns us not to listen to false prophets at every turn
My friend, have you accepted God’s plan of saving grace
If not, do so today, then Heaven will be your dwelling place

Just say a little prayer from the sincerity of your own heart
Dear Jesus, I realize I am a sinner and not good on my part
You are the Son of God; You died for my sin and rose again
I place my trust in You alone, thank You for saving me Amen
