Legend of First Christmas Bell

The Legend of the First Christmas Bell

The shepherds gathered quite a throng in Bethlehem as they journeyed to meet the newborn king.
A little blind boy sat along the side of the town's road, and hearing rumors of the angel's announcement, he begged the traveler's to lead him to the Christ child. No one would take the time.
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 in the very stable where Christ lies," and followed the bell to the stable.
There, the cow led the boy to the infant Jesus.

I really like this this story, but am stumped on how to present it with a small (craft size) cow bell. Any ideas?

I love this story is that the end? I would just put Raffia on the bell and add an ending to the story. As a reminder, place this bell on your tree or in your home and know that you are never lost God will always send someone or something to show you the way. Linda
