"The Adoration of the Shepherds" by Gerard van Honthorst
This time of year, a lot of people are thinking about baby Jesus.  About two thousand years ago, God came to earth as a baby.  His name was Jesus.  The story of baby Jesus is so wonderful that even the angels are in awe over it!

Jesus grew up and He lives in Heaven again–soon He will come to take us home to Heaven with Him!

When Jesus was grown, He said, ” I go to prepare a place for you.  And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.” (John 14:3)  I am eager for that day–how about you?

Jesus is the King of Kings, but can it be so odd?

There was no room inside the inn to house the Son of _________________!  (Luke2:7)

And soon He’ll come to take us home—forever by His ______________________!  (John 14:3)
