There is something so amazing,
that it is difficult to distill it into words.
But that is the way it should be.
The day we celebrate the moment
our salvation was born
and given to us.
Before, we were like shepherds
in the fields
going about our meager lives.
Angels in the sky,
a multitude of them singing.
They not only sang, they spoke, they announced
the birth of a king.
When else has a king’s birth been announced
in such a manner?
The shepherds were wowed, terrified, and
at that moment, their whole lives changed.
They knew it, and they ran.
They left their livelihood, their sheep, their home.
This thing that had happened imported life.
Nothing else mattered.
The good news! brought to them, and
nothing else mattered.
A king, a savior, the Messiah, the anointed one
God with us, the amazing good news
God—the one who loves us
God—came and nothing is the same anymore!
