New for 2013, the Gentle Ewe from Inge-Glas of Germany (No. 1-024-13, 3" tall) brings a dear little sheep to your Christmas Tree.
It was to the Shepherd that the Angel came to announce to the world the birth of Jesus.
"And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night.
An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified.
But the angel said to them, 'Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people.
Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord.
This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.'" - Luke 2:8-12
Sheep are one of the earliest domesticated animals and Shepherds one of the earliest occupations. A food source to be certain, but also a provider of wool, and thus warmth.
We find ourselves celebrating Shepherds and their sheep, including this Provençal Christmas Shepherd,
and have created a Pinterest Board on Shepherds - affording a place to collect wonderful images of their everyday importance.
Add this Gentle Ewe to your Christmas Tree and be reminded of all the warmth of the holidays.
