Epiphany Pageant

Did you know that angels spin in the light of distant stars (or ceiling lights) while the shepherds guarding their flocks by night discuss the happenings in Bethlehem?

Can you imagine anything more adorable than three little angels proclaiming loudly, "Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men"?

Did you realize that there were two magi, both girls, one of whom dropped her treasure, but neither of whom dropped a line, and that for once presented their gold, frankincense and myrrh at the proper time?

Don't you wish you were there to see a visit from an angel, Cinderella in a manger, three comedic yet informative shepherds, and the miracle of only one of the numerous children needing a bathroom break in the middle of the pageant?

Me? I feel blessed to have been there to witness the holiness, preciousness, and spontaneity of every minute of it. Even if several of the minutes were spent in the bathroom.
