The Silent Shepherd

                                                      - Patricia Moore


  Aaron lay close to his father to stay warm in the cold night air. Nonetheless, a shiver went through Aaron. He wanted desperately to be like his father, able to call to the sheep. Many times, he tried to call to them, but the words never came. He only could make strange sounds that no one could understand. Sometimes, Aaron would see tears in his father's eyes when he tried
to speak. He felt that his father was disappointed in him. He would never be a shepherd.

"Aaron, why are you so restless? It's time to sleep," Aaron's father said as he stroked his son's hair.

Aaron tried to sleep, but all he could see was the sadness in his father's eyes. If only he could talk! His father would be so pleased with him.

After a while, Aaron's eyes grew heavy and he fell asleep. He dreamed that he was able to speak. When he called his sheep, they followed after him. His father's eyes were free from tears.

Suddenly, Aaron was awakened by a brilliant light in the heavens. Aaron's father held Aaron close to him.

They both huddled together in fear.

An angel appeared to them and said," Do not be afraid. I bring you news of great joy. The Christ Child has been born tonight in Bethlehem. You will find Him wrapped in a blanket, lying in a manger."

Then the angel was joined by a multitude of other angels. They watched in amazement as the angels sang, praising God. Then the angels returned to heaven.

Aaron couldn't wait to see the Christ Child. He tugged at his father's sleeve and pointed towards Bethlehem.

"Let us go to Bethlehem and see the Christ Child."

In great excitement, they hurried to Bethlehem with their sheep following behind them.

When they found the manger, Aaron was afraid to come inside. He felt he wasn't worthy enough to see the Christ Child. With all his heart, he wanted to say happy birthday to the Christ Child but he knew he wouldn't be able to say even a single word to Him.

Aaron's father, seeing the fear on his son's face said,"Don't be afraid. Our Savior wants your love not your words."

Aaron held his father's hand. They knelt in
adoration before the Christ Child. As Aaron looked upon the Christ Child, all of his fear left him. How he wanted to be able to wish the Christ Child happy birthday. Suddenly Aaron felt his words ready to burst forth.

"Happy Birthday!" Aaron shouted to the Christ
Child. Tears of joy came to his father's eyes and he embraced his son.

"I love you, Father," Aaron exclaimed.

"I love you, Son."

Overjoyed, Aaron and his father went back to their fields. Aaron spent the rest of his life telling everyone about the birth of the Christ Child and how he once had been a silent shepherd.

GRADE 3 COMPREHENSION

       The child who saw Santa Claus
Once upon a time, there was a child who wanted to see Santa Clause. 'I am old enough now to see Santa Clause,' the child said. 'I am seven years old. Show him to me, mother,' he begged.
'Oh, I cannot show you,' the child's mother said.' I can tell you about Santa Claus but I cannot show you his face.' 'May I go out and look for Santa Claus, myself, then?',the child asked. 'Yes, you may go out and look for Santa Claus,' the child's mother said, and she brought him his warm coat and cap and his mittens (gloves). 'But do not go too far away from home,' she added. At the gate, the child met his grandfather. He was a very old man with white hair and spectacles. Now, his grandfather's arms were full of fat packets. One packet looked as if it were a toy fire engine and another packet looked as if it were a mask, and a ball and gloves.
'Where are you going?'the child's grandfather asked. 'I am going to see Santa Claus,' the child answered.  

The grandfather smiled until his blue eyes shone(looked bright and shiny). 'Will you know Santa Claus when you see him?' he asked. 'Oh, yes,' the child said. 'Santa Claus is an old man with white hair, and twinkling (sparkling) eyes, and a nose like a cherry-' but the child suddenly stopped. 'Oho!' his grandfather laughed, and the child listened in surprise. He had never heard such a merry laugh before. The child saw some horses coming his way but did not know which way to go. He might have been hurt, but a hand took hold of his and helped him safely across the street. He looked up at the man, who wore a long red cloak. 'Who are you?' the child asked.  'One of the christmas helpers,' the man said. 'I stand here at the street corner and ring a christmas bell. People who pass by give me money for the poor people I help. And where are you going?' he asked the child.'I am going to see Santa Claus,' the child answered. 'Will you know Santa Claus when you see him?' the man asked. 'Oh , yes,' the child said , ' Santa Claus wears a long red cloak-' But then the child stopped...wondering.

A little farther on, there was an old man, sitting in a shop, and making toys. The toyman turned to the child who was just going out of the shop. 'Where are you going?' the toymaker asked the child. 'I am going to see Santa Claus,'  the child answered. 'Will you know Santa Claus when you see him?' the toyman asked. Oh , yes,' the child said, 'Santa Claus will be making toys-' but he did not say any more. He got down from his bench and put a box of little wooden animals in the child's hands.'Merry Christmas to you from Santa Claus!' said the toyman, as the child thanked him and went on, wondering. The child went back home and his mother was very glad to have him back.'Did you see Santa Claus?' she asked. 'Oh , yes!' the child answered. 'I saw him when I met Grandfather, and I saw him standing in a red cloak at the street corner and helping the poor. I saw him in the toyman's shop. I saw Santa Claus everywhere,' the child said.
