rohirrim of angels

I'm not completely sure, but I think that some of you may have seen the Lord of the Rings trilogy. I want  you to remember those armies of orcs, ,of elves, and of men at Helm's Deep just prior to the massive battle in The Two Towers. Remembering that, read the Christmas story from Luke 2.

That night there were shepherds staying in the fields nearby, guarding their flocks of sheep.Suddenly, an angel [just one angel] of the Lord appeared among them, and the radiance of the Lord’s glory surrounded them. They were terrified, but the angel reassured them. “Don’t be afraid!” he said. “I bring you good news that will bring great joy to all people. The Savior—yes, the Messiah, the Lord—has been born today in Bethlehem, the city of David! And you will recognize him by this sign: You will find a baby wrapped snugly in strips of cloth, lying in a manger.” [again, one angel appears and they're terrified. I probably would be, too.]


Suddenly, the angel was joined by a vast host of others—the armies of heaven—praising God and saying, “Glory to God in highest heaven, and peace on earth to those with whom God is pleased."


A "vast host of others—the armies of heaven...." -- a massive army of angels. Just imagine a huge mass of men; shouting out in unison the words they loved to shout: "Glory to God in highest heaven, and peace on earth to those with whom God is pleased!"

Thanks! I had to clean this post up twice. Typed it out in such haste that I didn't proof it, which is an obvious no-no.

Thanks for the grace on the "Luke 3" error. :-) It's now gone.
