And after all of this the angels left them and went up into heaven. And the herdsmen conferred with one another. “We should go to Bethlehem and see about this sign,” they said. According to the Lord, a baby is supposed to be there.”
And they left eagerly and sought out Mariam and Joseph and the baby, which was lying in the manger. And when they saw them there, they knew its significance, about the word given to them by the angels, and about this child. And when the little family heard the shepherd’s report, they were amazed about it. And Mary continued to add it all up in her heart. She joined their story up with the many amazing, but hidden, signs they had experienced.
And the shepherds returned to their fields giving glory and praising God for all that they heard and saw. For it was all just as the angels had said.
