Today we remember Joseph, husband of Mary, the mother of Jesus. Joseph took care of Mary & Jesus by creating things as a carpenter and whisking them away from danger when King Herod went on a killing spree.
It must have taken a bit of courage fleeing to Egypt – into the unkown, a foreign country – to creatively adapt his carpentry skills to provide for them there.
Back in Nazareth, I’m sure Joseph must have creatively repaired things, too. To make them last a little longer, especially for his poor clientele?
In honor of Saint Joseph, here’s something for our hearts to contemplate today.
Indeed. May Saint Joseph’s faithfulness & courageous creativity inspire us today.
grace, peace & courageous creativity
