Today is International Tea Day and National Wear Your Pearls Day. If you want to be fancy, throw on your jewels and brew some tea in your finest cup. If not, just plop down in a comfy chair in your sweatpants and let’s pray glory to God in the Highest.
Staying in Luke chapter 2 – the most popular place to read the true Christmas story – we see the shepherds have just heard the marvelous news of the Savior. After the angels returned to heaven, these men wasted no time in deciding to go find Jesus. It is their expediency I want to focus on today.
“So they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby, who was lying in the manger.” Luke 2:16 NIV

Calvonia Radford says
Oh that I would hurry to the feet of Jesus versus moseying into my prayer closet in the morning with a sigh. Yet, I found him to be faithful. He meets me daily with new mercies.
Yes. He is so good, even when we are not. Thank you for sharing, Calvonia.

“…to hurry daily…” is a beautiful phrase that I want to hold near and dear. I am grateful to be able to pray with you in the Name of Jesus.
I’m grateful too, Linda. Thank you!
Joanne Viola says
Lauren, another beautiful from just one small verse. I want to “hurry daily” to spend time with Him. Today and every day. Thank you!
Today and every day. Amen, Joanne.
Jeanne Takenaka says
Busy-ness too often keeps my time at Jesus’ feet shorter than it should be. Thanks for the reminder of the shepherds’ beautiful hearts that longed to see His face. May my heart be to spend more time with Him daily.
Mine too, Jeanne. Amen.
I remember as a child hearing about the angels and the shepherds – and I could feel the awe of it deep in my soul. I want to slow down and savor those words, those scriptures – and what happened that night – and feel it like I did as a child!
Yes!!!! I am wanting to soak up as much of Him as possible right now.
Lisa Blair says
Such a joy to spend time with Him every day, Lauren!
Thank you, Jan.
