Mailbox Decorations - Part 2
Wise men were last year's winners in my mailbox competetion. In an act of neighborliness They were moved into the yard across the street.. They bear gold, frankencense, and myhrr as gifts for the baby Jesus. Myrrh being commonly used as an anointing oil, frankincense as a perfume, and gold as a valuable. The three gifts had a spiritual meaning: gold as a symbol of kingship on earth, frankincense (an incense) as a symbol of deity, and myrrh (an embalming oil) as a symbol of death.
