mary's song.

And Mary said: 
'My soul glorifies the Lord
and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior
for he has been mindful
of the humble state of his servant.
From not on all generations will call me
for the Mighty One has done great
things for me--
holy is his name,
His mercy extends to those who fear him,
from generation to generation.
He has performed mighty deeds with his
he has scattered those who are proud in
their inmost thoughts.
He has brought down rulers from their
but has lifted up the humble.
He has filled the hungry with good things
but has sent the rich away empty.
He has helped his servant Israel,
remembering to be merciful
to Abraham and his descendants forever,
even as he said to our fathers.'
(Luke 1:46-55)

Today, we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, the Savior of the world. My prayer for this day, as every other day, is that we would sing to the King just as Mary did right before she was blessed with a son. May we open our eyes to see the beauty He has bestowed upon us + open our ears to hear the sound of His voice + open our hands to receive His gift of grace + open our hearts to embrace His everlasting love + open our mouths to share the Good News: "For unto us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace" (Isaiah 9:6). Let us rejoice over this beautiful truth: God sent His Son to us so that we might be saved through Him (John 3:17). Jesus has come to rescue us!

Merry Christmas, friends + family!
May you be blessed in the favor of our Lord Jesus Christ on this day, as well as every other day He permits you to walk along this breath-taking earth He created for us.
