Highlight:  What is the meaning of “20+C+M+B+19”? — Well, I’m glad you asked.

Serendipity Farmhouse is a special place, a state of mind, and a retreat from a troubled world. Even if there is bad weather and hard times, it is our home – it is the place where we believe we were meant to be. And without becoming overly religious or pious, this is where God wants us to be during this time in our life. For that reason, like many others throughout the world, on the Solemnity of the Epiphany we asked God to bless our house.

So, on Sunday we wrote “20+C+M+B+19” above the entrances to our house. You can clearly see the year “2019”. The three letters “C+M+B” have two meanings. First they represent the traditional names of the three Magi – Caspar, Melchior, and Balthazar and they stand for the phrase “Christus mansionem benedicat”, which means “May Christ bless this house”.
