I commend to you a daily meditation, “Morning Whispers,” from Brother John at Perfect Peace and Joy. I subscribe to this daily meditation and enjoy it. Each meditation begins with a verse from scripture. Today’s verse:
” And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. ” Luke 2:8
This is followed by a brief reflection to move you deeper into God’s story (recorded in scripture and) now being told in your life (with your help, of course). Today’s reflection is filled with grace and wisdom. My Christmas prayer for you, dear reader, is that you will believe what Brother John shares. I believe it. It is an amazing grace, Today’s reflection:
The first to greet the child were the shepherds-poor, filthy and smelling like their sheep. They were welcomed by Mary and Joseph for they understood who this child was and who he was to be.
Christ is waiting for you…just the way you are.
May this truth bless you today, tomorrow, and always.
