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 the Messiah, 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 heaven, and on earth peace to those whom his favor rests.”
Merry Christmas to all…and to all a good time with your family and friends. Safe journeys.
Your Happy Contessa
P.S. I am off to visit my lovely daughter and will be out of touch until around the 28th December. Yes she has a computer, but I am there to treasure every moment with her. Thank you for always reading and really appreciate all your comments.
