Advent Ornaments: Day Twenty-two

I love the shepherds' response to the good news. Let's go! Once they have heard, they don't waste any time finding Christ. And Mary's reaction is precious--she treasures up the experience and ponders it in her heart. I pray my heart is as responsive and reflective as the day of Christ's birth draws near!
Luke 2: 15-20
And it came about when the angels had gone away from them into heaven, that the shepherds began saying to one another, "Let us go straight to Bethlehem then, and see this thing that has happened which the Lord has made known to us." And they came in haste and found their way to Mary and Joseph, and the baby as He lay in the manger. And when they had seen this, they made known the statement which had been told them about this Child. And all who heard it wondered at the things which were told them by the shepherds. But Mary treasured up all these things, pondering them in her heart. And the shepherds went back, glorifying and praising God for all that they had heard and seen, just as had been told them.
