This is written from a Mother’s Perspective – specifically from Mary’s. I did a lot of research into what it would have been like, but this is STRICTLY my imagination, there is no guarantee any of this really happened or really were her thoughts. I do use scripture through out. However, it’s mostly how I think I might have thought if I were her.
A Mother’s Thoughts – Day 547
We had some interesting visitors today. I had Jesus outside playing when the strange looking men came up, bowed down in front of Jesus and started worshiping him. They didn’t say hi or anything, they just bowed down and worshiped Jesus.
After a few moments they got up and went to their treasures and presented Jesus with gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh. Once again, I found myself in awe and wonder. They were gone as quickly as they had come.
So strange. Joseph and I wondered if these were the Kings spoke of by Isaiah. He said, “And all from Sheba will come, bearing gold and incense and proclaiming the praise of the Lord.” He also said, ““The islands and coastlands will confidently wait for Me; And the ships of Tarshish will come first, To bring your sons from far away, Their silver and gold with them, For the name of the Lord your God, For the Holy One of Israel because He has glorified you.”
We also talked about the Psalm we recite that says, “The kings of Tarshish and of the islands will bring offerings; The kings of Sheba and Seba will offer gifts. Yes, all kings will bow down before him, All nations will serve him.”
Maybe one day we will know. All I know is these gifts are usually given to honor kings, so they must have known who Jesus is. They must have come a great distance.
Off to prepare our meal before calling it a night. What an eventful day. Much to ponder once again.
