~ Westward leading, still proceeding ~

And so, the ADVENTures of the Wise Men continue...

 
Conferring with the kings & queens of different lands...
While the kings & queens exchange pleasantries,
the camel is weary and confides in the horse
 
We are looking for thy perfect Light...have you seen Him?
 
Day Four is spent on higher ground, making it easier to survey the land and seas...
 


Onward they travel...
Little do they know the potential danger of where they now stand.  Thankfully they are on their way before the "towers" catch fire!



The camelus dromedaries is found eating holly...they are famished.  Drom, as the camel is now called, is having a rough go...but he valiantly pushed forward.  As do the three wise men.


Wonder!  Is this the Mediterranean Sea?  Or the Sea of Galilee?  Or could it be...the Dead Sea?  Dun-dun-Duuuun!!!!


Stay tuned for more ADVENTures as the Wise Men search for the Truth...

  1. I love the idea of conferring with the kings and queens on the chessboard! Very clever!

  2. I'm loving this story of their journey. I wish we had known of this tradition of having the wise men journeying throughout the house when our boys were young.

    1. Hi Anna. My children are having almost as much fun as I'm having...

      In our past home, we would move our large statues closer to the nativity until the Epiphany. I first learned this from my pastor, who had the magi on one of the side altars, where the nativity was set on the opposite side altar...growing up, I never did anything like this. Glad to have this new tradition to really mark the holy days.
