Luke 2 tells of the famous siting of a heavenly host of angels by the shepherds in the region on the night of Jesus’ birth. Angels were not only present the night Jesus was born, but they came out en masse! Yes, many angels were present that night, but we need to remember that there are many angels present with us today. They live in heaven but they visit and surround us. We cannot often see them, but we can take God’s word that they are there. Psalm 91 promises this for all those who love God: “He will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways; they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.” You are free to ask Jesus for the protection of angels any time you feel unsafe or afraid – not just at Christmas time, but all year long! Let’s create our own heavenly host in this touching angel craft that provides a great opportunity to tell that story again and make children feel a part of it.
