When Advent began, I passed this bookshelf in the upstairs hall and noticed three tubes perched on top of a book. Not thinking much of it, I continued on to the laundry room. They remained there throughout the season, inviting me to take a closer look one day when the clutter was more than I could handle.
I recognized the wise men from a child’s Sunday School Nativity craft. One daughter had set the cardboard manger scene up in her room, leaving the wise men in the hall to arrive for epiphany.
In another part of the house, on the dining room mantle, three more kings move a bit closer to the living room where the manger scene awaits. One of the camels seems a bit hesitant, though. Could he be looking for someone who was left behind?
Anyone for a game of Spot it! living room side table version? Go!
