naA Thought: The Journey from Nazareth to Bethlehem was long and difficult.

But the Holy Family kept moving forward. Once they were there, no hotel accommodations were available for a woman very uncomfortable in being so near to giving birth. The only healing of her discomfort was in going through the pain of birth.
Life doesn’t stay in ‘happy mode,’ nor does it stay stuck in trauma—life moves forward. We know this, but tend to forget it. Let us take a cue from Mary and Joseph: Keep focused on your goal, encouraging one another, leaning on God for your strength and He will see you through to the JOY which awaits you!

Phil.3:14 “I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.”
