Can it be?

Have I for so long

Forgotten to feed myself?

 

Yes.

For nigh a year now

I was slowly starving.

Getting lost in busy days,

Tossing aside the hunger

That chewed away inside.

 

Yet, I did not die.

By some quiet miracle

I made it to the moment

Of truth:

 

I nearly starved to death.

 

It was not my body

That I failed to feed.

It was my spirit,

Left alone for days

Without nourishment or care.

 

And then one day

I paused to look within,

Shocked at what I found:

So thin of faith,

So weak of understanding,

So needy of encouragement.

My starving spirit cried the truth:

I can!

I will!

I must

Be fed!

Which road do I take?

Which road do I take?

 

One day Alice came to a fork in the road and saw a Cheshire cat in a tree.

‘Which road do I take?’ she asked.

‘Where do you want to go?’ was his response.

‘I don’t know,’ Alice answered.

‘Then,’ said the cat, ‘it doesn’t matter.’

We three kings of Orient are

Bearing gifts we traverse afar
Field and fountain, moor and mountain
Following yonder star
O Star of wonder, star of night
Star with royal beauty bright
Westward leading, still proceeding
Guide us to thy Perfect Light
Born a King on Bethlehem‘s plain
Gold I bring to crown Him again
King forever, ceasing never
Over us all to reign
O Star of wonder, star of night
Star with royal beauty bright
Westward leading, still proceeding
Guide us to Thy perfect light
Frankincense to offer have I
Incense owns a Deity nigh
Prayer and praising, all men raising
Worship Him, God most high
O Star of wonder, star of night
Star with royal beauty bright
Westward leading, still proceeding
Guide us to Thy perfect light
Myrrh is mine, its bitter perfume
Breathes of life of gathering gloom
Sorrowing, sighing, bleeding, dying
Sealed in the stone-cold tomb
O Star of wonder, star of night
Star with royal beauty bright
Westward leading, still proceeding
Guide us to Thy perfect light
Glorious now behold Him arise
King and God and Sacrifice
Alleluia, Alleluia
Earth to heav’n replies
O Star of wonder, star of night
Star with royal beauty bright
Westward leading, still proceeding
Guide us to Thy perfect light
