One week later

One week later and the world is back to fighting. I wonder what happened to the baby of Bethlehem?

Last week visitors from the East brought gifts to a king. They shared things which they thought were significant for this special baby they had been searching for. I wonder if they found peace. It seemed peaceful.

Now they have gone, I wonder if the star is still there, or has it gone too?

Gulls squabble over food

This week the gulls squabble over who is going to get what food. There just isn’t enough for what everyone wants. I wonder if there’s enough for what everyone needs? It’s impossible to tell with all the raucous noise and the big birds pushing the little birds out of the way.

Perhaps the baby is now a refugee gone in search of peace. I wonder how we can find his peace.

Perhaps we might try to be as generous as those visitors were with their time and their gifts. I wonder if we’d keep finding peace if we did that.
