For our first Sacred Sunday photo of 2013, we are sharing this sunset, in northeast Greensboro, from a few days ago. Nature is a beautiful thing. In the long hours of darkness in the winter months, a beautiful sunset becomes a cherished gift. Today is not only Sunday, it is the Epiphany, the Biblical Visitation of the Magi to the Baby Jesus. Some cultures are celebrating Kings' Day and children will be receiving gifts. So, regardless of what you celebrate today, take a look at the sky and be thankful for its eternal beauty. Even on overcast days, we can find something that makes us feel gratitude.
If you get a chance, head to a bakery and purchase rosca de reyes, which looks rather like something between bread and fruitcake. If your piece has the little plastic baby Jesus in it, know that the next party will be at your house! Well, dear readers, Happy Epiphany. May you have a day of rest and a day where nature reaches down and embraces you in its glory.
