Epiphany Light & the Friday Five

Arise, shine; for your light has come, and the glory of the LORD has risen upon you. –Isaiah 60:1

Today marked the celebration of the Feast of the Epiphany, celebrating the revelation of God as Son in the human Jesus. Most observances focus on the visitation of the foreign Magi, who presented the unlikely infant king with gifts. The 12 days of Christmas are officially over, and we move into a season of light, or awareness, and of seeking.

To that end, today I invite to you find your “Friday Five,” five people, places, or things for which you are thankful. I am thankful for

1) new beginnings,

2) quality time with family,

3) the return of our cat,

4) a great group of people with whom to work and worship, and

5) recovery from a nasty cold.

Now it’s your turn! Identify your five, offer a prayer of thanks for these gifts, and if possible let any people on your Friday Five know how much they mean to you. If you’re willing to share your Friday Five, please post them as a response. Let’s share the blessings and live thankfully together.

Pax et lux (peace and light),
