Some of you have asked about the status of the 3rd wise man. If you recall on my post of November 9, my girlfriend and I found two wise men, and they immediately joined Mary and Joseph and the baby Jesus in our outdoor nativity scene.
Friends, and family alike, have searched high and low for the whereabouts of a 3rd wise man. Thank you for so heartily pursuing this quest. I am delighted to report that the 3rd wise man has now been happily joined with the rest of the group in the cleft of a large rock in our side yard. (See photos)

While I was visiting a friend in the hospital Amanda, and boyfriend, Austin secretly placed him in his rightful place next to his cronies, the other two wise men.
Now the three Magi/wise men can “bow down and worship him….when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts; gold, and frankincense and myrrh.” (Matthew 2:11)
