Dear Jesus, I bet You got into trouble for worrying Mary and Joseph when you stayed behind in Jerusalem. They were so glad to find You, and You told them they should have known You would be in the Temple. You were beginning to understand just who You were. Mary and Joseph were beginning to understand as well. May all families, Lord Jesus, support one another as they grow together. Amen.
