CHRISTMAS LEGEND (The Legend of the Christmas Bell)

The Legend of the Christmas Bell
     While traveling to Bethlehem to meet the newborn King, the shepherds met a little blind boy. He wandered aimlessly through the streets hoping someone would lead him to the Christ child. But nobody stopped to help him.
     After the crowd passed and the streets grew silent, the boy heard the faint tinkling of a cow's bell in the distance.
     He thought to himself, "Perhaps that cow is at the very stable where Christ is."
     So the boy followed the sound of the bell until he came upon the stable. There, the cow led the boy to the infant Jesus.
     Since that first Christmas, bells ring out the joy of the birth and call people to worship and prayer.
