Now, she was tending to her family’s flocks. When she heard of the baby king, her heart became full to the brim with love and devotion and faith.
So, she decided to go see the baby in the manager. She walked down the hills and saw the three kings enter the manger where baby Jesus was being taken care of by Mary and Joseph. When she came closer, she could not gather the will to enter.
You see, all the others came bearing gifts. And this poor shepherdess had nothing to offer to baby Jesus. So, she looked around the hills. Up and down she went, but she could found nothing.

When the angel, who called everyone, saw the poor little shepherdess cry, the angel understood why she was crying. “Do not cry my child,” the angel said. When the girl looked up, the angel spoke again. “Do not cry because you have no gifts, there is nothing better than blossoms given with love and that which springs to life from the bed of tears.”
And with that, the angel touched the ground, and bed of beautiful roses sprang up. The shepherdess took the blossoms and went to see baby Jesus with a smile. You may also like to read, Sir Cleges And The Christmas Cherries.
