Several years ago, when I was teaching. . .
I was asked to teach a Bible class. . .
(Biblical/Theological Studies was my minor in college.)
. . . & it was always touching when the high school students that I taught
realized that Mary was only in her mid-teens
when she was chosen to be the mother of Jesus.
This Christmas, my heart has been so touched. . .
. . . again & again. . .
over the incredible faith & trust of Mary & especially of Joseph.
. . . & of how God chose such a situation to come to us.
. . . & how blessed we are because of their faith & obedience.
. . . may the peacefulness & wonder of this day be yours.
