There were shepherds out in the field. an angel of the Lord appeared: “I bring you good news.”

A multitude of the heavenly host: “Glory to God in the highest!”

Shepherds: “Let us go over to Bethlehem and see this thing.”So they went, glorifying and praising God for all they had heard and seen. Luke 2:8-20 (December 11-15)

Then my calendar skips a few verses to Luke 2:25-35: “Mine eyes have seen thy salvation!” (December 16)

December 17 – Wise men came from the East. Matthew 2:1-2.

I have been stressed, and ranting. Apologies to anyone who was waiting for the next installment, but I’m still writing the bleeding essay.
