Wishes

20. The wise men worshipped the child Jesus, and gave him three gifts.

Magical three wishes are the staple of fairy stories. Placing yourself in the position of the wise men, worshipping, what three gifts would you offer the child Jesus? From the very heart of your being what would you give. Of all of the carols, “In the Bleak Mid Winter” holds a magical image in the last verse where Christina Rossetti manages to direct our thoughts in this matter of gifting Jesus.
What can I give Him, poor as I am?

If I were a shepherd, I would bring a lamb;

If I were a Wise Man, I would do my part;

Yet what I can I give Him: give my heart
