It’s winter. We must dress warm for the cold nights. Yet the days will be warm in the sun. This will be about a 10 day journey I think. That is the distance. I wonder how Mary will do? She’s exhausted from the journey to Bethlehem. Why did Yahweh want us to go there? This child, is he so special? Are we carrying something utterly new to the world?
The people who visited us all seemed to be guided by the Spirit to come and pay respect to our child. Something amazing is happening and I must follow the Spirit too. This child will change me. He will change all of us. To Egypt. To safety. I must protect Mary and our child… (Photo of painting by Palestinian Artist)
