Epiphany is, to me, the second half of Christmas. Part one is that the Word is made Flesh and becomes a reality in our life, not an abstract God looking down, but one who now lives as we live, breathes as we breathes, and is present with us, seeking us to recognize and respond to that. Epiphany is when we say "yes," and find Him and love Him and welcome Him into the life we live each day. Even when we are the lousiest of hosts. We do become like children, don't we, because we always wish to be in the presence of the loving Father who will take care of us forever. The Epiphany for us is when we see that as the Magi saw it.
