The Shepherd

It is every Christmas eve after mass our family goes for a drive to  admire the Christmas lights  strewn on houses and high up in the trees. It’s at this time we quietly comment on the decorations and listen to  Alan Maitland’s rendition of Frederick Forsyth’s, The Shepard on CBC Radio.

 It is a story which makes us drive that extra half hour and listen intently to what will happen next to the WWII pilot flying home from Germany at Christmas.

It is always at the end of the story in which are children have a sleepy look, always full of questions,  and thinking of the good shepherd as they close their eyes ready to be tucked into their warm  bed.

The Shepard is a quiet reminder that sometimes there is a guardian angel looking over our shoulder and can be our saving grace.

Wishing Everyone a Beautiful Christmas, Full of Warmth, Joy, and Peace!
