You know, I don’t believe The Father uses people. Instead He writes Himself into their Love Story. Everything had changed for Joseph and Mary. And The Father never forgot that they were made of dust. In fact, He chose to become dust Himself.
We can only imagine how This Beautiful Love Story unfolded.
The Nativity Story movie is a new tradition for me. It’s about a spiteful, fearful king.
And three other kings who honored The Lord with their presence and their presents.
It’s about Mary and her family and a community that didn’t understand. And it’s about a man named Joseph. A man of honor. Who accepted Jesus as his son.
- his disappointment and shame
when everyone knows that Mary is with child
- his dedication to his wife and determination
to protect and provide for her
- his overwhelming joy upon seeing the Savior
born and holding Him in his own hands
I cry all the way through this movie.
Because it’s about the Birth of Our Lord Jesus.
And Delightful Surprises in the Beauty of Sacrificial Love.
I imagine that it all happened.
