How hard was it to tell Joe the news
you knew he had to know?
You weren’t married yet to this nice guy
but you couldn’t live with a lie.
Joseph was much older than you
but his commitment was very true .
He could have just sent you away
but he knew God wanted you to stay.
He treated you with the greatest love
knowing your mission was from above.
I wonder how did you feel
knowing Joseph’s love was real?
It’s good you weren’t living today
dealing with what nosy folks would say
They wouldn’t give you a second look
before posting it all over Face Book.
As we begin the days of Advent
help us to look for what God has sent
and ready ourselves for Christmas Day
so we can find special times to pray.
