The Story Of The Christmas Bell

A Legend.... The Shepard's gathered quite a throng in Bethlehem as they journeyed to meet the new born king. A little blind boy sat along the side of the towns road and hearing the rumors of the angels announcement, he begged the travelers to lead him to the Christ Child... No one would take the time and be so kind to take him. After the crowd passed and the streets grew silent, the boy heard the faint tinkling of cow bells in the distance... He thought to himself, "Perhaps that cow is in the stable where Christ lies" and followed the bell to the stable. There the cow led the boy to the infant Jesus....

LUKE 2:10 And the angel said unto them. Fear not: for, behold I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.

LUKE 2:11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a savior, which is Christ the Lord.
