The most glorious message ever told was delivered by angels to humble shepherds tending their flocks by night.
And in the same region there were shepherds out in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. 9 And an angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were filled with great fear. 10 And the angel said to them, “Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. 11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.12 And this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger.” 13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying,14 “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased!” Luke 2:8-14
Here is a story to celebrate that night, about Daniel and his father, who were waiting for the arrival of the Messiah.

“My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all, and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father’s hand. I and the Father are one.” John 10:27-30
The last few week I have been consumed with the wonderful message of being safe in God’s hands. I’ve had my artist Cristina illustrate it. Picture yourself secure in those loving hands. No one can snatch you out of the hands of Jesus. No one can snatch you out of the Father’s hands.
As we were working on these pictures, I had the visit from Peru of one of my former Sunday school girls. I wrote a story about God’s care in her life. You can find the story in TESTIMONY STORIES. I also have some new testimony stories.
My friend Jeanet in Sunday school in 1967 in Huancayo, Peru. She is the girl in white on the left. You might be wondering why there is a car in the background. We had to accommodate classroom space wherever we could fin it.
There will soon be more stories and activities. A card for Mother’s Day is in the works.
I wish you God’s blessings!
In God’s Hands is the safest place.
