Happy Holidays to All
We wish all of you the best of health and much happiness this holiday season - and special Christmas blessings to the shepherds out there. Remember, it was shepherds who the angel Gabriel told of the birth of our Lord. It was a humble manger that sheltered the baby Jesus when his parents were turned away from other housing...and it was farm animals that witnessed His birth and first hours on this earth. I think of these things while I sit on the hay with a sick lamb this Christmas Eve. We're in a very ancient and noble profession. May God bless us and give us strength of character and green pastures.
