The Baby Grew Up!
The sun had just disappeared behind the hills when they arrived at the Gates of Bethlehem. Joseph was very much concerned for his young wife. Mary has been fidgeting for the past hour or so. He can’t be sure because she has always been a woman of less word. Riding on the back of a donkey traveling on a rocky road is no help at all. She knew that the time for the baby to be born is near. To take her mind away from the pain, she pondered over the Angel’s visit nine months ago. As if they were reading each other’s minds, Joseph was reflecting on the vision of the Angel in his dream. Engrossed in their own thoughts, they both marveled in the mystery of the child in Mary’s womb.
