How do you approach the New Year - is it with resolution and purpose, seeking ways for things to happen, or is it with an attitude of 'wait and see' 'what will be will be'?
These two images are about seeking and waiting and spring from the Bible accounts of the Magi who followed a star to discover a new-born king (Gospel of Matthew chapter 2) and Simeon a man of faith who waited patiently in the Jerusalem temple for this same Messiah (Gospel of Luke chapter 2). These folk we read about held a belief that they would be led to this Messiah. It may be that you also hold to such a belief but, whether you do or not, a useful New Year reflection would be - are you a seeker or a waiter and how will you know when you have identified who/what gives you life?
There are a variety of reflections here - all personal to me while seeking to inspire reflection in others. Almost exclusively they are associated with images of mine, which I trust is helpful to those of us who think visually! Comments are always welcome.
