Colossians 3:12-14 NKJV

“Put on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering; bearing with one another, and forgiving one another, if anyone has a complaint against another; even as Christ forgave you, so you also must do. But above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfection.”

Context — Joyous Epiphany

Context Backstory:
Joyous Epiphany | Shell Choir

Hello all,

Note: IF you already have a rhythm or visual you like to associate the post with, OR IF you want to read it artistically blank-slate, then skip the short note at the end.

The past few posts have been on the heavier spectrum of serious in tone. This one takes a more fun approach to still a serious, but joyful, topic — Christ’s baptism and the revelation of the Holy Trinity. Truly an event to celebrate!*

Remembering that we are to become as little children (Matthew 18:3), we can enter into a world filled with amazement, where everything great and small holds a message proclaiming some part of God’s mystery to us.

For this post, I thought these shells had quite a bit to say. Written are a few wandering wondering questions to their answers, the details of which will probably change from person to person and moment to moment.

A joyous Theophany to all! Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit: now and ever and unto ages of ages. Amen.

May your way be brighter and your dreams sweeter. Thank you for taking the time to visit! The peace of God be with your spirit,

“And Jesus, when He was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto Him, and He saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon Him: and lo a voice from heaven, saying, ‘This is My beloved Son, in Whom I am well pleased.'” Matthew 3:15-17 KJV

*This revelation is often called Epiphany or Theophany, and its celebration takes place on January 6 or January 19, depending on the calendar used

Note: To me, this lyrical prose/poem sounds like a lullaby, upbeat but not fast-paced (kind of like skipping).
