The Holy Spirit had brought about this pregnancy to the innocent Mary, and the angel explained the situation to Joseph. According to the messenger, Joseph would raise and protect God’s only Son. The angel even named the child—Jesus. No need for ultrasound when God sends an angel.
The assignment was given to Mary also, and I'll write about that tough commission for her later.
In Sarah and a Dad for Mandy, Sarah finds a stepdad for Mandy. Her mother didn't know who'd fathered the little girl.
I admire the men and women who faithfully love, protect and provide for children they didn't give biologically produce. They chose these children. In so doing, they quite often accept what turns out to be a challenge.

Have you ever wished Thanksgiving and Christmas didn’t fall near each other on the calendar? The proximity makes it difficult to decorate for each one.

How did Halloween start anyway?

"Behold I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him and he with me." Revelation 3:20.
He didn't barge into my life but waited for my invitation. I was a child and ran to the door immediately to allow Him inside. Adults are sometimes more cautious. They look out peepholes, ask questions, and sometimes refuse to open.
I'm thrilled I did. He lets the good stuff enter my life such as joy, peace, love, patience, understanding. But other times, I allow the bad stuff to come in. Anger, unkindness, disgust, resentment. Oh my...the list can grow.
My life can become quickly cluttered with bad stuff. That's when I ask Him to help me clean house and throw the trash out the door.
