And the star they had seen in the east guided them to Bethlehem. – Matthew 2:19
I can’t quite call a star to hover over the hospital when Baby Girl is born. And we’ve already been reminded that not everyone is on Facebook, so we’ll have to share the news the “old fashioned way.”
A few times recently, I have looked up at the clear night sky and seen stars shining bright. Imagine the thought of knowing that one of those stars was “speaking” to you!
I have been to the hospital a few times to see friends and their new babies. I get an e-mail, a text message, a phone call. That’s expected today.
In Mary and Joseph’s time, I am sure that a message would take a few days to get to anywhere out of town. Fortunately for Joseph, we can assume that his family had traveled to Bethlehem with them.
I supposed God can use whatever means he deems necessary to make an announcement. And a star is pretty cool.
Baby girl is great and we love her, but she’s not that cool, so a text message or e-mail or phone call will have to do.
