Camelus Dromedarius (that’s one hump, not two), the “ship of the desert.” So important were camels to life and travels in the deserts of the Middle East that in the language of the Bedouin the words for “camel” translate to “God’s gift.” It seems fitting that a caravan of beasts so aptly named would have transported these gift-bearing wise men as they followed the star that foretold the birth of the messiah. Our particular camel was so valued by his owner that he was named for the great Persian king, Darius I and was the only camel in the train allowed to sleep in his owner’s tent.

 

The Gift of Life
The Gift of Life

 
"A baby is God’s opinion that life should go on.” — Carl Sandburg

Perhaps the finest capacity we have been granted as humans is to bring new life into this world. As parents, grandparents or brothers and sisters we all have had the chance to experience the wonder and joy inspired by the birth of a new child. The heart of Christmas is the celebration of the birth of Christ. Gift of Life, the first in our third set of Holiday Angels, serves as a subtle reminder that the miracle of every birth is a gift from heaven.
