Early autumn on the rise against the night sky two silhouettes, black against the clouds of stars one sit riding sideways upon an ass while another walk beside holding the lead along the road tired, dirty, and worn Sometimes she felt ill and fatigued as she feels the child move, the thoughts of her beautiful baby she was about to have put her at ease and the sickness would cease No room in the lodge, but room in the stable "She gave birth to her son as angels watched A lullaby she sang while he slept cradled in a manger A blazing beacon suspended in the mid night sky lead the Sheepherders eager to see the Infant child lying in a manger, in swaddled in cloth A dream they thought a silvery gleam A mighty host of angels appeared in the heavens, praising God! who would become the Messiah, the Son of God thus, one day redeem us Shouts of joy came alive in the night air as cherubs gather singing "Born upon this holy night Christ the Savior is born" With gifts three kings Marveling upon the Star of Bethlehem A blazing beacon suspended in the mid night sky Guiding them to the perfect light 12/20/2016 12/20/2016

Would be good on a Christmas greeting card to tell the story as it really happened. Great example, Eve. Beautiful pic too. Glad you shared it with us.

the true meaning of Christmas. So lovely. Have you heard of The Chosen, a series on Christ's life? I plan to see the theatrical release of the Birth of Christ with my daughter Saturday I look foward to it
