For Just a Moment
The Bible does not tell us in so many words what Joseph said when JESUS was born. Nor does it detail for us the interaction he had with JESUS, but since Joseph was chosen by THE FATHER, I am certain HE chose very well.
I wonder if Joseph cradled GOD in human flesh, longing for HIM to be his son for just a moment. Perhaps for just a moment, for just that one night he could protect GOD from HIS own world.
