You know I got to thinking on this special night. There they are in the barn and all and out pops baby Jesus. Somebody had to cut the cord, right? I mean literally -- there was a moment when Jesus was literally CUT AWAY from Mommy Mary.
Now, imagine how that conversation could have gone when Joseph and Mary got to arguing about something. I mean -- there's postpartum depression (click the post title), sure. But Mary screamed one night when Joseph told her to buck up I'm sure:
"Who the hell are you? You didn't feel Him! I was CONNECTED to God and they cut the cord! You have no idea!!!!"
And whew, she was right.
