Wise Men Still Seek Him

So the church is putting on a Christmas play, right? And we were a little short on adults to play some of the parts (like the Wise Men who brought gifts to little Jesus). So sort of jokingly, one of the play workers picked three random men from the congregation and signed them up for the parts.

We had our first run-through yesterday and, lo and behold, they all showed up! I knew two would be agreeable, but the third (we'll call him Mickey, and thank God no one from church knows about this blog, cause Mickey might take offense at being called Mickey) I had just about written off as a lost cause. He is the manliest man I believe I've met! Retired Air Force, this dude has a plane in his garage! He's got a great heart, though, and he sure was a trooper yesterday. I'm just hoping he'll still be gung ho when he sees the costume we've got picked out for him :)

Just my two cents: If you can't be a manly man while playing a part in the life of Jesus, then you aren't really a manly man at all.

God bless them all!

Our local school has three gorgeous wise man costumes that have been used by it and all the local churches for years. They're bright colored and floor length with gold brocade and matching hats. The only problem is that one of them is hot pink. Every year it's a real fight to see who won't have to wear it.

I'm so glad your faith was justified...the manliest man I know is also the kindest and most reverent one I know...lucky girl me, he's mine!
