Luke 2:20 NASB "And the shepherds went back, glorifying and praising God for all that they had heard and seen, just as had been told them."Covered in filth, covered in mud and muck, we walked away knowing that what we had seen and done was truly a miracle! Today's verse speaks about the shepherds who went to see the Christ Child on that first Christmas morning and how they came away glorifying and praising God! There was no possible way for anyone to be alive after the building had collapsed, and yet as we walked way from it, finding those trapped inside alive and well, we knew we had seen a miracle! There will be things in life that will cause us to wonder, like the birth of Jesus Christ, the Savior of the world, coming as a small Child. I pray that as we move closer to that celebration, we will walk away glorifying and praising God for all we have heard and seen in our life up to this point and look eagerly for His Return but until then, there is much work to be done! So, share the love of that small Child this year, by whatever means and ways His Holy Spirit leads us! And remember, we don't have to be clean to see the miracle of His Birth, we just have to open to it! peace, tom
