Mary found herself with child – she was confused and scared.

How could this be?

An Angel of the Lord told her it was all part of God’s plan.

She would see.

Mary accepted God’s blessing with an open and joyful heart.

She received it.

Mary would raise her son, the one who is our Savior.

She believed it.

This son lived flawlessly, as the prophets had foretold.

So he behaved.

Mary watched her son die painfully.

And so the world was saved.

And, then I found myself with children, in awe of it all.

How could this be?

I prayed for wisdom, guidance, grace.

More Him, less me.

God has showered me with blessings in response,

My son.

We grow together, day by day.

His will be done.

I’ve learned a son can change the whole world and change mine.

If I choose it.

I’ll hold your love, your life, that gift close to my heart

And never lose it.

I am a wife to Greg; mom to Greg Jr., Zach and Kate; CEO of Soul Healing; author; artist; lover of Jesus and seeker of the elusive wonders of simplicity, truth, balance and rest.
