At the Inkwell: A Young Shepherd's Story

I'm blogging over at Inkwell Inspirations today. The theme is: Fear Not, For Behold!

Since I already did a blogpost on fear when I reviewed Max Lucado's book Fearless: Imagine Your Life Without Fear, I wanted to do something different this time.

Because I'm still enjoying the Christmas holidays, the Nativity story is still on my mind. I started thinking about the fear the shepherds would have faced as they stood out on the hill above Bethlehem and the heavens opened in a choral song. What would I have done? Quaked in fear? Run? Fainted?

As usual, my imagination took over.  The story is about a cocky young shepherd named Nathaniel and what happened to him on the night Jesus was born.

If you have a few minutes, please join us there.


  1. I love that you took a different angle on the story!

  2. went and read the story and also commented there. loved your shepherd boy's name *grin*

    my New Year's wish for you: may the Lord bring you your heart's desires this incoming year.

  3. Angela and Deb - thank you for taking time out of the busy holidays to stop in and visit. Hoping you both have a successful writing year.


Come on, tell me what you think...
