“After the wise men were gone, an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream. ‘Get up! Flee to Egypt with the child and his mother,’ the angel said. ‘Stay there until I tell you to return, because Herod is going to search for the child to kill him’” (Matthew 2:13).
Some days are full of fun and laughter and joy. It’s like the sun is shining and everything is wonderful. The day Jesus was born was like that. His parents welcomed their precious baby, angels announced His birth to shepherds and wise men followed the star. Other days are filled with sadness and tears and worry. Those days are dark days.
