8 January 2017 – Epiphany

8 January 2017 – Epiphany
January 6, 2017 Judith Simms
Sunrise

A recognition

An awakening

A wondering……..

A shout

AN EPIPHANY

 

Oh Lord,

God of the Universe

And everything in it,

Wake us

Overwhelm us

Inspire and

Regenerate us.

 

Sunrise

The glory of the sky!

Clouds coloured and transformed

By the awakening light.

 

Sometimes we stop to gaze,

Our breath caught by the glory

Surrounding us

Our minds suddenly stalling

With the thought –

‘If this is here on earth

Then what is heaven like?

 

Praise and thanksgiving

Bubble up,

Overflow

Yet we are speechless.

Words insignificant

Thoughts beyond articulation.

Yet our spirits respond,

Our hearts lift,

Our hopes rise

And we know

Something of the Angels’ song,

The brightness of the star,

The awe and reverence of those wise men

Kneeling

Believing.

 

Our own Epiphany

Is a precious insight

Where we believe

Suddenly;

Somehow knowing a little of

The truth:

Immanuel, God with us!

Amen.
