A few hours later, Mary and Joseph were interrupted from their sleep.

Mary said to Joseph, "Look there are shepherds outside the stable."

Mary was worried that they might have to move and find another place to rest. "Joseph, please go see what they want."

Joseph reluctantly got up from his place of rest and went to see. Shortly after he came back to Mary's side and told her that they wanted to see the baby.

"Why?", Mary asked. Joseph replied, "I will let them tell you. Is it OK?"

"Yes, it is ok, Joseph, let them come in", Mary answered.
