Commentary: Matthew 1:1-16, 18-23 (Birthday of Our Lady)
Now this is how the birth of Jesus Christ came about. When his mother Mary was betrothed to Joseph, but before they lived together, she was found with child through the Holy Spirit. Joseph her husband, since he was a righteous man, yet unwilling to expose her to shame, decided to divorce her quietly.
Jesus, the story of your earthly parents and how they both welcomed you into their life is such a good reminder to us that our perspective does not even come close to understanding your Father’s motives and mission. When those things come along that are hard to understand and hard to accept, help me have the peace and the generosity to be willing to participate in a plan that is bigger than my little world.
Fly Lady - This website was one that inspired me when I was a young and overwhelmed mom of several littles. It teaches a very manageable approach to being productive and keeping basic order in the home.
