No Ordinary Night




No Ordinary Night
by Ruth Bell Graham

"Those were no ordinary sheep...
no common flocks,
huddled in sleep
among the fileds,
the layered rocks,
Near Bethlehem
That night;
but those
selected for the Temple sacrifice;
theirs to atone
for sins they had not done.

How right
the angels should appear
to them
That Night.

Those were no usual shepherds there,
but outcast shepherds
whose unusual care of
special sheep
made it impossible to keep Rabbinic law,
which therefore banned them.

How right the angels should appear to them
That Night."

Blessings,

I love that the ordinary and 'flawed' were picked to be there on that night. Another example of who Jesus was and that it began the night He was born.

(My husband is from NY, northern NY, and we lived there for a short time. What part are you from? And I do love Advent...).

A perfect little poem to go with the darling nativity. Hope your weekend is going well, dear Linda. We're in the midst of another snowstorm as I type this...I can't believe all the snow we've been getting and it's not even Winter yet! lol xoxo
