I love that it says But while he thought on these things….
Joseph was a but person, and questioning person
But what will happen to her
But do I have to follow the law here
But I could shield her from this apparent sin she committed
But what will happen to the baby
But we had such plans
Within those buts and questions, he was a thinking person
He thought on these things then...
He waited to hear
He was a just man who followed God ways
But just this one time couldn’t he follow his heart?
He thought and pondered
He wasn’t watching TV, listening to music, reading blogs, texting
He was thinking and that thinking led to a visitation from an angel
Could we quiet our lives to think ... to listen ... to receive a visitation that would answer all of our questions?
