Many people drove past the tax collectors as they entered the town.  Saw the town's people as they milled about not understanding the amazing event that has just taken place.  Heard the praise of the angels as they sang their joy at the birth of the Lamb of God, the Savior of all.  Stood in awe with the shepherds as they saw the Son of God lying in the manger. Gazed in wonder at the star with the Wise Men from the East. We are thankful for all who came to share in our joy as we remember the birth of our Savior from sin, and the beginning of the work that He did for our salvation.
