Watching Their Flocks by Night








journal entry:


We know there were shepherds watching over their flocks by night

when the Angel of the Lord came before them and made them sore afraid.

I don’t know how much those special lambs understood

about their role in this wonderful, real-life Christmas play,

but since a lamb has long been another name for Christ

and HE is often called The Lamb,

I assume that a lamb has a very special little spirit.

And, that is a nice thing to assume.

They are quiet, peaceful creatures.

Since I couldn’t find Bristle Lambs, I made them using pigs.

These are ceramic pigs which were sold as tree ornaments.

[ They don’t know that they are pigs. ]

They look and sound and think just like lambs.

Baa. Baaaaaa.
