Joseph Has a "Dream"

When the wise men had departed, an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream and said,
"Get up, take the child and his mother, and flee to Egypt,
and remain there until I tell you;
for Herod is about to search for the child, to destroy him."

Matthew 2:13-18

"Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary your wife into your home." -- Matthew 1:20

You are saluted, St. Joseph, most loyal assistant in the decisions of God!

[Sorry that my translation is not very "smooth." John]

This is a very beautiful and elegant card, Micki. I remember how afraid of Herod I used to be when I was a child! And John's translation - "most loyal assistant in the decisions of God!" - how wonderful is that?
All Best Regards, Lynneda

Hey John, it's "smoother" than a Dairy Queen in my eyes. :-)

Lynneda - Always happy when people like the cards. Thank you.

I had to enlarge it twice. I am in awe of its beauty and its artist's ability and gift to portray Joseph dreaming this way. I had to also look closely at Joseph's face. He doesn't look too happy, yet responds to the dream with "fiat." The angel stands on a cloud. Interesting!

And I'm certainly glad John is no longer observing silence... he he he... Thanks to John!
