    Across the whole land, people seemed to care only about getting more of what they wanted.  None of the joy of heaven reached them.  Only a few people waited and hoped that the Messiah would come soon.  To those people, God sent angels with a message.

     Some of the angels traveled with Joseph and Mary from their home in Nazareth to Bethlehem.  

     God had a plan.  He would use Caesar Augustus’s decree to bring Mary to Bethlehem at just the right time.  Mary being a descendant of King David, she had to travel to David’s city, Bethlehem, to be counted.  Many years before, the prophet Micah had foretold that the Messiah would be born in Bethlehem.  And now, thanks to the Romans, He was going to be.
