On the Sickth Day of Christmas

Magi and Mystery © Jan L. Richardson

Reading from the Gospels, Epiphany, Years ABC: Matthew 2.1-12

I’ve spent the past few days dealing with an unexpected Christmas guest: a rare (for me) head cold. It’s one way to get a break, I suppose, but not the way that I’d planned to spend these lovely days between Christmas Day and Epiphany. I finally gave in and went to the doctor today and trust I’ll be back in the swing of things soon.

I had planned to post a new reflection for Epiphany early this week, and still have hopes of doing so before the week is out; we’ll see how that goes. In the meantime, I invite you to visit my previous Epiphany posts: Magi and Mystery, Inviting Epiphany, and Feast of the Epiphany: A Calendar of Kings.

On this sixth day of Christmas, I wish you peace and good health!

    Dear Jan, Sometimes God has a plan for us to slow down whether we like it or not. I hope you are taking the time to recover from your cold.

    I have felt so blessed to have you accompany me through Advent this year and am looking forward to being with you for the rest of the year. You are my new bff.

    Thank you for sharing your gifts with all of us. Peace and blessings, Rachel

      Many kind thanks, Rachel! Yes—I’d already been planning to do some resting up during these days, and the cold is helping me make sure I do this.

      Thank you for journeying with me through Advent—I’m grateful. Many blessings to you as we enter a new year!
