MA WAS A COUNTRY GIRL

In those days to be pregnant with no husband was looked upon with disdain to say the least.

Being engaged helped, but still the people wanted a wedding where they could be wined and dined at the wedding feast, and much of their concern was about missing out on that.

To say that Joseph was an understanding and forgiving boy friend was putting it mildly.

Even though he was older, still it was a hard pill to swallow (Holy Ghost or not).

Mary had to hang on until the time came to be delivered of this miracle child before she and Joseph could start their normal married life.

Jesus Christ being born in the cow shed wasn’t a very prosperous beginning, but the angels (heavenly host) sang as they had never sung before, for this was to be a single performance. Perhaps the song was something like;

“O HOLY NIGHT”
Oh, holy night, the stars are brightly shining
It is the night of our dear Savior's birth
Long lay the world in sin and error, pining
Till He appeared and the soul felt it's worth

A thrill of hope, the weary world rejoices
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn'
Fall on your knees, oh, hear the Angels' voice
Oh, night divine, oh, night when Christ was born.

Never before in the history of man had the angels been assigned a task such as that; the announcement, "The Savior is born."

This night actually had it’s beginning before the creation, for Christ was as one slain before the foundation of the world.

Yep, his ma was a country gal but she knew how to be obedient to GOD and by her obedience to bless the entire world.
