The Story of the Other Wise Man
The Story of the Other Wise Man | Henry Van Dyke
13 posts | 5 read | 2 to read
You know the story of the Three Wise Men of the East, and how they traveled from far away to offer their gifts at the manger-cradle in Bethlehem. But have you ever heard the story of the Other Wise Man, who also saw the star in its rising, and set out to follow it, yet did not arrive with his brethren in the presence of the young child Jesus? Of the great desire of this fourth pilgrim, and how it was denied, yet accomplished in the denial; of his many wanderings and the probations of his soul; of the long way of his seeking, and the strange way of his finding, the One whom he sought--I would tell the tale as I have heard fragments of it in the Hall of Dreams, in the palace of the Heart of Man.

Great little jewel of a story I discovered this holiday season. Can't believe I'd never heard of it. 🤔

I may still finish another comic or two before the day is over tomorrow (and I still need to finish up the Hornby!) but this is pretty much my December reading. This was an unusual month in that only two reads were print books. One was an audiobook, and the rest were ebooks via Hoopla or Serial Reader. I did kinda load up on short holiday reads on #SerialReader! One of those (tagged) made it to my #BestOfDecember list. 😊 #seasonsreadings2016

I woke up far too early and stayed up far too late packing, and I didn't finish stitching my bookmark gift, but I am settled in at the airport and ready for a trip from balmy South Carolina to frigid upstate New York! 😂 I'm reading a lovely Christmas story! #airportreading #serialreader

I absolutely loved this. It's the story of a fourth wise man, who stops to help a dying man while on his way to meet the other Magi. He is left behind as a result, and the story follows his pilgrimage to find the King. It's a beautiful story with a wonderful message- just what I needed as a pause in the rush of the past few weeks. #serialreader

"...the light for which the world is waiting is a new light, the glory that shall rise out of patient and triumphant suffering. And the kingdom which is to be established forever is a new kingdom, the royalty of perfect and unconquerable love. ... Those who seek Him will do well to look among the poor and the lowly, the sorrowful and the oppressed."

Who seeks for heaven alone to save his soul,
May keep the path, but will not reach the goal;
While he who walks in love may wander far,
Yet God will bring him where the blessed are.

I'm debating on bailing on Gilead and getting on with some Christmas reading. Gilead was a cozy read for almost the first half but now is getting too cerebral.

DebReads4fun I really enjoyed Gilead, but read it in small portions. 3y
