But I wonder what happened with the shepherds the next day. Having seen the angels and having visited the newborn Jesus, did they go back to work the next day? Jesus' public ministry did not begin till decades later, so I wonder what it was like for the shepherds after having returned to their work. They probably saw God in every leaf and lamb. Imagine the conviction and enthusiasm with which they would have told and re-told the story...for the rest of their lives. Sometimes, I think I've spent most of my life's energy trying to convince myself that I didn't really see what I think I saw, that I really didn't hear what I think I heard, that the impossible is impossible. God help me.
