Christmas is Here!

And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night.  An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified.  But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people.  Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord.  This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.”
Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying,
“Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests.” Luke 2:8-14

The shepherds were keeping watch.  They were alert and not asleep.  Help me be awake to the words and messengers God sends to us. Help me to remember that Jesus is the good news.  Always.  Everyday.  Every night. Remind me, please that Jesus is here with me all the time.  Help me to look to Him, find Him, and spend time with Him knowing that God’s grace rests on me.
