What a picture of God who creates all things so generously. White icicles to decorate real trees outside and a colorful orchid to enjoy during winter.
The first Christmas was cold and dark for shepherds. Then, the night sky was filled with light "and THE ANGEL OF THE LORD CAME UPON THEM."
The shepherds were interrupted in their job of guarding sheep with the most generous message anyone could get.
FOR UNTO YOU IS BORN, IN THE CITY OF DAVID, A SAVIOUR WHICH IS CHRIST, THE LORD.
Not only was this message for them but the good tidings was FOR ALL THE PEOPLE.
The real gift of God's love in a small baby. God with us like the shepherds we must be quiet enough to listen and humble enough to go find the babe lying in a manger.
Read Luke 9. Holy Bible
