While Shepherds Watched Their Flocks By Night



These three shepherds sit in front of our fireplace. 


Their faces so expressive.



The drummer is gettin' it!


And their sandals just crack me up.


Each has a tag with a short story.  This one for some reason is my favorite ;-).  His story is:


"This baby lamb I'm holding kept our Savior warm the night he was born.  When Mary wrapped the Babe in a blanket, Joseph was afraid he might get cold during the night.  Since they had no more blankets, Joseph picked up the newborn lamb and placed him in the crib next to Jesus. The Christ Child slept peacefully through the night warmed by the soft white fleece of the lamb.  Mary smiled at the sight of her Son.  She was filled with love and amazement at knowing that He was the Lamb of God sent down from heaven."

Sitting in front of the fire with a sweet warm little lamb snuggled up in my lap...

Merry Christmas
