If there are sheep, there had to be a sheepdog. Maybe the sheepdog was out trying to find a present to bring.
The book The Dog of Jesus looks like an interesting read for dog lovers.
For several centuries an isolated mountain village in Mexico has held hidden an amazing secret, an immortal dog that performs miracles of healing. Recorded in ancient Spanish records, it is the dog of Christ, a mongrel stray dog that was present at the crucifixion and which was stabbed by the same spear that pierced the body of the Savior. When a tragedy reveals the dog’s existence through a series of miracles accidentally caught on television, it upends the world, destabilizing governments and causing worldwide revolution.
Meanwhile, a little boy wants to make sure his dying mother has the best Christmas present ever.
“If mama meets Jesus tonight … ” Warning: Have the Kleenex handy.

This is a film project from Film School.
It is about a boy buying his mother shoes at Christmas.
Song written, and performed by New Song
“The Christmas Shoes”
It was almost Christmas time
And there I stood in another line
Trying to buy that last gift or two
Not really in the Christmas mood
And standing right in front of me was a
Little boy waiting anxiously
Pacing around like little boys do
And in his hands he held
A pair of shoes
His clothes were worn and old
He was dirty from head to toe
And when it came his time to pay
I couldn’t believe what I heard him say
Sir I wanna buy these shoes
For my mama. please
It’s Christmas eve and these shoes are just her size
Could you hurry sir
Daddy says there’s not much time
She’s been sick for quite a while And I
know these shoes will make her smile And I
Want her to look beautiful
If mama meets Jesus tonight
They counted penny’s for what seemed like years then the
Cashier said, “Son, there’s not enough here.”
He searched his pockets frantically
Then he turned and he looked at me and he said
“Mama made Christmas good at our house though
Most years she just did without, Tell me sir,
What am I gonna do?
Some how I gotta buy her these Christmas shoes.”
So I laid the money down
I just had to help him out
And I’ll never forget the look on his face when he said,
“Mama’s gonna look so great.”
I knew I’d caught a glimpse of heaven’s love as he thanked me and ran out
I knew that God had sent me that little boy to remind me what Christmas is all about
[Repeat Chorus with children]
I want her to look beautiful if mama meets Jesus tonight
