“And Mary treasured all these things in her heart”, Luke 2:51.  What an amazing heart.  A heart to say “Yes”, and believe the God who could do what had never been done before.  A heart to give birth to a miracle and watch Him grow, raising Him in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.  A heart to open her arms wide, and allow her soul to be pierce, and let Him go.

Yes, Blessed are you among women.  Through a woman sin entered the world.  Through a woman a redeemer has come and will come again.  Not as a Baby, but as the mighty, warrior King.  And on his thigh is written “King of Kings and Lord of Lords”.

Merry Christmas!
