One year ago, I blogged about a grand potential about a year. The open-endedness of 2013 suggests of a year where living begins - when the energies that was once channeled to fuel my youthful adventures have to now sustain a life of greater stability. Marriage, career, savings, rent, among others are now finally in the books. It is surreal and as I am being enveloped by these new imperatives, it is surprising that I actually want to engage them.
The above said imperatives are difficulties, if you ask me. Because life is never easy. Today happens to be the Feast of Epiphany, the liturgical symbol observing the manifestation of the Incarnation of Christ. This, being the truth that I believe, applies to my situation.
It is a strange thing that life is not meant to be easy. But as mysteriously difficult it was for the wise men to find that manger where Christ as an infant was in, it is the beauty of destiny that makes these difficulties prove how much the value of truth it is.
A year has passed since I started observing the liturgical calendar in an Anglican setting. It has brought me much joy to be connected to the life of Christ in such a manner. I hope that come what may, I can find my truths for the year within this premise.
