In reading through the Christmas story in Bible study I've found this year that I have been particularly interested in studying Mary. I never understood before the fear that seemed present in her from the time she found she would be the mother of Jesus I think maybe this year as I anticipate our own special delivery that I understand just a touch of what she must've been feeling.
As I gather with family and friends and we celebrate this glorious Day I am reminded of Mary's story and her strength and I thank God for using this amazing gift I've been given to understand the story of Jesus just a little better than before. My heart, thoughts, and prayers go out to all of you for a wonderful, Merry joyous and perhaps peaceful Christmas celebration.
From our Growing Family to yours:
Til after Christmas.....
