Matthew 2 (Day 2)

 Day 2: Reading through the Gospel of Matthew….

Today was a heavy text.  Instead of focusing my attention, this time, on the Holy family fleeing for their lives and imagining their lives as refugees in an unknown land,  I chose to focus on the star.  What made that start look ay different from the others?  Did it give off more light?  Did it twinkle?  Could the Magi only travel at night or was the star always visible during the day?  And what might it be like to be a star? 

Teach me your mood, O patient stars!
Who climb each night the ancient sky,
Leaving on space no shade, no scars,
No trace of age, no fear to die.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson

What drew your attention/focus in today’s reading?
