The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all they had heard and seen, as it had been told them. Luke 2:20

Heavenly Father, the shepherds followed your signs to the manger to see your blessed Son and share the good news of his birth. May we continue to sing your praises as we experience your deep and abiding love for us. Thank you for this beautiful gift of Christmas, the truest form of grace. In His name we pray. Amen.
