WHEN I GET TO HEAVEN
The frenzy of last minute preparations are going on in the Coble house. Our daughter and her husband are home from Arizona. We've been checking our lists to make sure I haven't forgotten anything, and I got to babysit yesterday while the girls went with Dave to buy my gift. But at church Sunday I realized there is one person in the holy family I really want to talk to. I hadn't thought much about him. We focus on Mary and baby Jesus, but wouldn't you love to know what Joseph thought? He was such a good man. He could have had Mary stoned. He could gave refused to believe the angel. He obviously listened to what God said and did it when he was told to go to Egypt to protect the baby. He raised Jesus too and was the male role model in his life. I'm so looking forward to getting to heaven and finding out more about Joseph and what he did and thought through those years. He's gone by the time Jesus steps into the limelight, but I just know Joseph played a huge role in our Savior's life. Kara, Mark and I were talking about faith yesterday and how difficult it is to wrap our heads around the immaculate conception. Imagine Joseph's reaction! Wow.
How about you? What part of the Christmas story are you most curious about? And Merry Christmas, friends! We're so thankful for you and your constant friendship!
