Christmastide is coming to a close; the beautiful and sacred twelve holy days and nights are ending in this glorious Twelfth Night. I hope you have beautiful plans for tomorrow!
Some of my dear friends and I gathered to make these sweet stars:
You can find instructions for these stars and other Epiphany crafts, including a recipe for a Twelfth Night cake, here at Little Acorn Learning: http://littleacornlearning.com/threekingsthemebook.html
In the book, “All Year Round”, the authors write, “The star that the Wise Men followed led not away into the widths of the heavenly worlds but to a house, an earthly dwelling, and an inevitable part of their journey was their encounter with evil in the person of Herod. We, too, may be following a star, seeking the abode of our highest aspirations. This is always to be found on the earth – set firmly in the ground of daily life, earthly tasks and responsibilities. On the way, we meet unforeseen difficulties, disappointments, even dangers, which may force us to change direction. But on all this the star shines: on the success and the failure, on the good and the evil, and in the clear light of its rays we are guided ever forward.”
May you all have a blessed day, and here is to finding your path this year in 2013.
