Following the Star

"So it was, when the angels had gone away from them into heaven, that the shepherds said to one another, "Let us now go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has come to pass, which the Lord has made known to us." (Luke 2:15 NKJV) Picture this: You're a shepherd minding your business watching your sheep on a quiet, star-filled night. All of the sudden, this angel appears telling you about this special baby named Jesus that was born, that you just HAVE to go see. Then the angel disappears. Do you question your sanity? Do you think you're so tired you're hallucinating? No, this shepherd, and two of his shepherd friends consult each other and decide to take a leap of FAITH, and make the trek to visit this baby. All they have to guide them is this amazing huge, bright start off in the distance that suddenly appeared. They start on their journey not exactly knowing where they are going in Bethlehem, or what to expect along the way. This took a lot of faith and trust. This is what we all need to have as we make our journey. Our life's path is our journey that ultimately leads to us meeting the baby Jesus someday if we follow the star. But, we too must have faith and trust as we follow the light that leads our path. If we do, we will reach the baby Jesus. Love, Beau
