Call me a traditionalist and in some regards I am – especially when you take into account this season. I really like the Christmas song, The First Noel. My wife and I last summer had the opportunity to hit the road and hear Celtic Woman in Raleigh, North Carolina. While they didn’t sing Christmas music at a summer concert, their rendition of this traditional Christmas favorite is incredible – the stings, voices, and intensity. It’s worth the listen.
Have you ever stopped to wonder about the shepherds in the fields. All of a sudden the brilliance of God’s glory illuminates the sky as the angelic announcement is made – the Rescuer is born. Head to Bethlehem and see it for yourself. Then before the angel returns to heaven, He’s joined by a chorus of heavenly host. For that one moment the fields serve as heaven’s stage on earth. This moment would never depart from the shepherds’ memories – a true treasure. They’d heard heaven’s glory.
Enjoy The First Noel.
