Do you trust God to purposefully shift the details of the universe for good at the right time and place?
rely on timing and details coming together.
What we do, when we do it, and where we do it
on the details:

- Joseph was required to go to Bethlehem the town of David . . .
- Joseph belonged to the house and line of David . . .
- Mary, expecting a baby, went with Joseph . . .
