There were two angel friends. One used to sunset pink robes while other used to adorn himself with sky blue robes. They were known for singing sweet duets about glory of God and playing on pure silver trumpets. They often used to lead the orchestra for angels because of their musical abilities. Once, their orchestra leader Temira gave them and other members of the angelic orchestra, an exciting news. God had decided to send his Son to live among His people. They had to prepare a musical jubilee in one of the most important events in the history of the world. It just had to be the best and all angels with good voice had to sing and all instruments were to be played for the event.
Temira asked his orchestra, whether they knew the importance of the
assignment. Trumpeting angel in pink said that he understood that the
Lord want them to appear to the shepherds in the hills of Bethlehem, who
had never seen an angel in their lives and might get afraid. The
trumpeting angel in blue completed the answer by adding that the angels
could replace the fear of the shepherds with joy and love for the Christ
Child and then, they could announce the arrival of the Savior. Temira
smiled and nodded contentedly. All orchestra members felt honored for
the opportunity and practiced for perfection in their roles.
On the day, Christ was born in the stable at Bethlehem and as planned,
the Christmas angels first appeared to the shepherds and the trumpeting
angel friends played the first few notes of the glorious concert in the
dark night sky. Shepherds looked up to the sky and were shocked,
surprise and awed, soon to be filled with amazement and wonder and their
hearts brimmed with humility and thankfulness to God for His glory. The
angels then gave the shepherds the good tidings of great joy and were
joined by many other angels who sang and praise God, filling the skies
with the angelic words - "Glory to god in the highest, and on earth
peace, good will to men".
