The last in the series of the folks of the Christmas Story for this Advent season was the shepherds. Waiting, watching, not expecting anything special in the midst of a dark night out in the fields tending the sheep. When suddenly - everything is changed.
Is the lesson we should learn about how we need to spend our time waiting? Perhaps. But maybe even more important, learning to trust that the promises God makes, God keeps. Maybe not in ways we would expect, but always kept. Which is great news to ponder and share!
