Mary hadn’t exactly been “family planning.”  So the news that she was pregnant was more than a small surprise.  How was it possible? What in the world did this mean for her future? Joseph was excited.  Excited about the future.  Excited about a future life together with a woman he loved.  Then the shattering news came: she was pregnant (and he knew he wasn’t the father).  Sometimes life throws curveballs at us and we have to adjust with God’s help.  Sometimes GOD throws curveballs at us and we get to experience him in a way that we never dreamed possible!
