Mary, Joseph

It is hard to imagine what excitement there must have been for Mary and Joseph before Jesus was born. To realize they were the ones chosen to bear and care for the tremendous GIFT of God coming to earth–the Prince of Peace, God With Us.

“God With Us”, help us to prepare our hearts to receive YOU in a much deeper way, this Christmas. As YOU gift our hearts, may we in turn, gift others. Birth anew our lives with YOUR great love in coming to earth. We YOUR weak children lift up, with great rejoicing, our open hearts, to receive YOU as Mary and Joseph, so amazingly did.

  1. I wonder if the excitement was also tempered with straight up nervousness about what others would think, and whether they would be good enough for the task that lay ahead.
