Imagine how wonderful it must have been when the angels appeared to the shepherds so long ago. Of course now, thousands of years later, we imagine angels to be cute little children with wings. However, the Bible indicates that the experience made the shepherds very afraid!  A huge supernatural event announcing the arrival of the Savior of the world! I am sure it was both terrifying and spectacular! Angels we have heard on high!! A whole sky filled with light and the sound of glorious praise and singing.

Although the picture for this post doesn’t match the grandeur of that night, it is actually a print that my grandmother had hanging in her house for years. As a child, I always loved the picture!  These angels aren’t big and scary, but they do remind me of many a Christmas at my grandmother’s house and the joy of that special birth.
