That last minute rush to get stuff done before you go away can be quite exhausting. Going through your mental check list to try and make sure everything is wrapped up at work with staff to cover your most important duties. Then there's the home needs with someone to water your plants and feed the cats and check on your house.
The last minute rush for any new expecting mother can be even more frightening. Now a days there is making sure the suitcase for hospital is packed with mom's and baby's needs provided for. At her tender age I have no doubt that Mary must have had many fears.
We don't read about them though. The birth of Christ is written of as one of and truly is one of the most blessed moments in human history. So many of us have lost a loved one around this time of year, so facing Christmas without them can be hard in the first few years after that. Finding the joy in the simplicity of Christ's birth, brings our hearts back to God.
