We were blessed with a gentle rain for the past day and night. It was a much needed refreshment for grass that has turned brown, trees and shrubs sapped by thirst and flowers that seem to be dying. With that much needed quenching, the Lord again has provided for the lilies of the fields. He will also provide for us. Even though we walk through the shadow of death, the Lord is with us.
Shepherds fending off their sleep, while they tended all their sheep.
Suddenly were startled by the hosts of angels in the sky.
“Do not fear,” was said to them – “We bring good news and peace to men.”
They followed God’s bright star above – and came to see their God of love.
In lowly manger there He lay, upon a scratchy mound of hay.
This King of glory promised long, had come to earth to right our wrong.
Again we wait for Him to come to take us to our heavenly home.
May we be ready for that day, pressing on where angels pray.
