Changed by what they had seen

The Shepherds witness to the birth of Jesus
A poem meditation from my friend Joyce Smith

The shepherds returned,
glorifying and praising God
for all they had heard and seen. Luke 2:20

The angels.
The stable.
The manger.
The baby.
The Son of God.

They glorified God,
for all they had seen.

Words
could not do justice
to what they had
witnessed.

It was the
light in their eyes,
the excitement
in their voices,
the energy
in their steps,
and the new found
purpose in their lives,
which witnessed
to all they had seen.

Joyce Smith
