Advent ~ Day 23

As promised ~ yesterday's photo has been posted, should you be interested.

Today we read from Matthew 2:9 - 12, which reads:

After hearing the king, they went their way; and the star, which they had seen in the east, went on before them until it came and stood over the place where the Child was. 10 When they saw the star, they rejoiced exceedingly with great joy. 11 After coming into the house they saw the Child with Mary His mother; and they fell to the ground and worshiped Him. Then, opening their treasures, they presented to Him gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh. 12 And having been warned by God in a dream not to return to Herod, the magi left for their own country by another way.

Did you catch that word phrase in verse 11?  "After they came into the house, they saw the Child. . ."  When the Magi did not see Jesus as an infant or in a cave/barn.  He was in a house and was a child.  During the Christmas season, we tend to tell all portions of the birth of Christ as one story and in has become understood to be all at one time, at His birth.

The Magi also experienced great joy at seeing the Christ.  In Greek, it is called Megas and Chara.  Megas means great and Chara means joy.  

Behind door 22 held the following Legos:

Geonosian Sleigh and a sleigh.
