A long, long time ago, a little girl named Dorothy lived with her parents and brothers.  Her brother were much older than she and spent most of their time with the flock of sheep that the family owned.  Dorothy loved bringing her brothers food and water while they were out in the fields.  When she noticed a group of strangers passing by, she was afraid that they were robbers.  But, she learned that a law was passed that all citizens must return to their place of birth to be taxed. So the road was now filled with people heading out.  Then one night, her brothers saw an angel and were told of the birth of a king.  They set out to see him.  Dorothy wanted to go along but knew her brothers would say no.  So she secretly followed them.  But she had no gift for the newborn king.  Do you have any idea of who Dorothy would see when she arrived?
