While Shepherds....

♪ While shepherds watched their flocks by night,
all seated on the ground;
the angel of the Lord came down,
and glory shone around ...♪
 It dawned on me this morning as I posted these words
from a Christmas carol on my facebook page
that "glory shone around"
in circumstances most ordinary - humble even,
in darkness,
and close to the ground.
That's where I live!
 I'll think of this with fresh appreciation when I pass our mantel
that holds (among other things) my small collection of  motley sheep.
While shepherds...


  1. I love your 'motley' sheep collection.

    Happy Christmas holidays dear Rebecca ~ FlowerLady

    1. Thinking of YOU, Lorraine. Your cottage looks so warm and inviting.

  2. Great sheep collection.

    I like your thoughts on this verse!
