A Promise Kept

In this fourth week of Advent, we find Mary with Elizabeth, both eloquently sharing the joy and excitement about all that God is doing in Mary's life. Mary seems to be floating on air - "I’m the most fortunate woman on earth!"

In such moments, it can be easy to forget that we live in a very different world than when Jesus was born. As we look about at all the beautiful decorations and enjoy the touching manger scenes, we can easily be unaware of the difficult reality of Mary’s time, and just how miraculous Jesus’ birth really was. Knowing the real story about those troubling times can help us to better understand and be grateful for God’s most special gift to us.
