2021 Christmas Music Marathon – Day 5

Scripture does not give us the complete story of his reaction, but when Joseph discovered that Mary was expecting, he was advised to quietly dissolve the relationship. Apparently Joseph sought what he thought was wise counsel because he truly loved Mary and wanted to do the right thing and not cause her any harm, emotionally, physically or spiritually. God sent an angel (most likely Gabriel) to inform Joseph of the situation and that he should not be afraid to take Mary as his bride. Joseph and Mary showed great faith and trust in God and each other. One can only wonder how Joseph dealt with their situation on a daily basis, because people are going to talk. After all, it wasn’t his child.

      1. It is part of my Christmas celebration to find new music for the season, or at least music that I know is new to others. I suppose it’s the musical version of geocaching.


    1. Yes, you think that firewood was for heat not atmosphere. Coats, scarves and hats were for warmth and not style and snow was often something to be endured and not an excuse to miss work or school.


  1. I love your spin on today’s Christmas music theme! I’ve stumbled on some songs written from Joseph’s perspective and I’m thinking I’ve listened to Michael Card’s song before. I might have even shared it on my site. My memory is horrible! Jospeh was a good man and he did love Mary. It had to be very hard to not do what others were whispering in his ear but instead he listened to God’s messenger and did the right thing. Beautiful songs for this blessed, holy season! I created a button for your Christmas Music Marathon so others might see it and stop by. Thanks for sharing the good news through music of Jesus’ birth. Merry Christmas, dear friend!
