A (very brief) reflection on Matthew 2.1-2,10-12:
Just time for a very quick thought or two, after a busy day. “Overwhelmed by joy” – what a wonderful concept. Something very much more than just “joyful”. We might allow ourselves to feel joy, but to be overwhelmed, with the loss of control that implies? Not often. I wonder what it would be like to give in completely to the overpowering, all-consuming, overwhelming joy which is to be found in God? Life-changing, I imagine, just as it was for the wise men.
