Day 10: The Father Joseph

Matthew 1:
18 Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost.

19 Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a publick example, was minded to put her away privily.

20 But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost.

21 And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JesusL for he shall save his people from their sins.

"1. The father is the head in his family... 2. The father is a teacher... 3. The father is the temporal provider..." L. Tom Perry

*Note from the secret elves* P.S. The "shepherd" we gave you for the nativity is actually Joseph. Our bad. :) Why he's holding a staff... don't ask us. :)

Therefore, the gift we received for Joseph, was a tie for Justin, the "Joseph" of our family.
