Ive shamelessly copied this from a friend of mine, but wanted to share it with you, this year remember the insignificant shepherds  and the wise men as those seeking something spiritual but not knowing where to look for it, as those that found in Jesus , the baby a recipient of a gift, and worthy of a journey. Merry Christmas.

by U.A. Fanthorpe

This was the moment when Before
Turned into After, and the future’s
Uninvented timekeepers presented arms.

This was the moment when nothing
Happened. Only dull peace
Sprawled boringly over the earth.

This was the moment when even energetic Romans
Could find nothing better to do
Than counting heads in remote provinces.

And this was the moment
When a few farm workers and three
Members of an obscure Persian sect.
Walked haphazard by starlight straight
Into the kingdom of heaven.
