The shining stars twinkled down on the stable in Bethlehem.

But, look! Another star shone, much bigger and brighter.

Below in the stable, crowded with sheep and lowing oxen, a shepherd’s dog lay by the door, ears perked to the cries of a woman giving birth.

Is she in pain? the dog thought.

Little did he know, he was witnessing the Greatest Thing! In an instant, a beautiful Little Baby Boy was in the woman’s arms. But Mary, His mother, knew He was not Little. He was LARGER THAN LIFE. HE WAS LIFE!

“A Baby! A Baby!” The dog leapt up and ran in circles. He’d only seen his master’s baby girl before. But this Lovely Baby created him. This Baby Boy created the bright star, set in the sky. He created Mary, Joseph, the sheep, the shepherds and the wise men.

HIS NAME IS JESUS. THE SON OF GOD.
