  1. Henry James said the two sweetest words in the English language are “summer afternoon.” Although they are lovely, I’m partial to “back pasture.” Love that sweet face set all aglow by the sun.

    Of course the angels showed up to shepherds tending flocks out in the hills. The city folk never would have noticed. 😉

      That has given me an idea for tomorrow’s post. 🙂

      Interesting info about Luke’s description of angels appearing to the shepherds. We tend to think of angels as beautiful women or cherubs playing harps. In the seemingly countless depictions of the angelic appearance to the shepherds, that’s almost always how they’re depicted. But in every Biblical appearance of angels, the angels (literally “messengers”) are men, often soldiers. In Luke’s story the “heavenly host” is literally an “army” of angels, presumably in battle gear. No wonder the shepherds were “sore afraid.”
