It is Christmas Time. This is a true story about our Savior the Lord Jesus Christ. How Joseph felt when Mary told him that she was with child. A life-changing moment in Joseph and Mary’s lives.

Her announcement

Mary was walking down the street on her way to see Joseph. The dusty street seemed so busy today. Mary wore her favorite hijab it covered her hair and neck and she felt very comfortable with the color. As she reached Joseph workshop she saw him talking to one of his customers. She stood outside the door and waited for them to conclude their business before she entered.

Joseph looked up and his eyes sparkled with joy when he saw her standing in the doorway. Smiling and he put his hand on his customer's shoulder and led him out of the workshop. Mary looked up at Joseph and waited for him to show her into the workshop.

“O Joseph, my darling I have wonderful news. I am with child.” Mary said as she looked at Joseph. Joseph almost had a heart attack when he heard what Mary said but he kept his composure and smiled politely saying “Mary, how did this happen?” Mary was saying something about an angel from the Lord but seriously we are living in the real world. It cannot be possible. He almost didn’t hear everything she said. Joseph simply said “Mary, we need to discuss this matter a little later; I have a pressing matter at hand and need to attend to it” walking Mary to the door as he led her onto the street. She smiled at him and walked off all bubbly.

A righteous man decides to divorce Mary

Joseph was a righteous man and he didn’t want to expose Mary but was considering divorcing her. How this day dragged on and finally Joseph went home. It was late and he was really tired as he flopped onto his bed and fell asleep. During the early hours of the morning, Joseph dreamt and he saw the angel of the Lord appear to him in a dream saying: “Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus because he will save his people from their sin.”

Obedience to the Lord

Joseph obeyed the LORD and as soon as it was possible went to see Mary. He proposed that they get married. During this time Joseph abstained from Mary and didn’t sleep with her until Jesus was born.

Caesar Augustus

Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census is taken of the entire Roman World. Both Joseph and Mary were from the town Judea and had to travel to their birthplace to take part in the census. It was during this time that Mary would be giving birth to Jesus.

Now Joseph and Mary were getting ready to leave, Joseph woke up early and went outside and prepared the fire, he took some water and placed it in a clay pot and warmed the water for his wife Mary. Bring the water to her so she could wash and get ready for the long walk to Judea.

A long trip

“Good morning my love, did you sleep well?” Joseph asked as he walked over to Mary where she lay sleeping.

Yarning as she opened her eyes with a smile on her face she said: “I slept like a log, what time is it?” Mary lay watching her husband pour the warm water into a jug and place it on the table next to the bed. Sitting up she placed her feet on the ground and pushed the blanket off. She took the jug and a small clothe and wiped her face. The warm water was refreshing and she felt so good. Joseph stood looking at his very pregnant wife and smiled. She sure has transformed from a little twig to a little ball. He would never say anything to hurt her feelings but she sure is very pregnant. She washed and dressed made the bed and walked to the door. Joseph was busy getting all the provision together for the long walk to Judea.

Taking his staff and walking next to Mary they left their home and walked to the main road. It was still dark outside there were a couple of people walking with them, the company started to grow as the day grew older. With the sun beating down on them they took refuge in the shade of the olive trees alongside the road. Every now and then a garrison of soldiers would come rushing past them on their way to Judea. These patrols were out to make sure there were no muggings or murders during this time.

Finally, Joseph and Mary arrived in Bethlehem, it was packed to the rafters, people were all over the place, and you couldn’t find an open spot. They stood in long queues waiting to register and then be on their way.

Jesus is born

Mary drank some water and ate an apple while she and Joseph stood in the long queue waiting to register. It felt like time stood still but they finally got to the registration point. Both their names were recorded and they were allowed to leave.

In Bethlehem, Mary went into labor and Joseph had to find a place. The entire towns Inns were fully booked in Bethlehem. Mary went into labor; Joseph looked for a place where they could spend the night. He finally asked one of the Innkeepers if they didn’t have a place for them to sleep. The Innkeeper said that they could use the barn.

During the night Mary gave birth to a little baby boy and Joseph named him Jesus. Mary wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger. A star shone brightly over the barn.

Shepherds on their way

Shepherds living in a field were keeping watch over their flocks. They saw the glory of the Lord all around them. They fell down in terror as an angel of the Lord appeared to them. As the angel came closer saying “do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. Today in the town of David a Saviour has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord. This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.”

Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying: “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests.”

In awe the shepherded stood and saw the angel go back into heaven they said one to another “Let’s go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about.”

What an awesome reason to celebrate Christmas. We have a Saviour who comes to earth for each one of us. Many you enjoy your Christmas season.
