Mary said yes.

My favorite portrayal of the Annunciation is Henry Ossawa Tanner's painting.  I love how Mary perches on the edge of her bed. In her face you can see her mulling over the Angel's words, trying comprehend all that is being told to her.

Every Advent I'm reminded of Mary's willingness to say yes to God.  I'm convinced she could have said no, confirming that God does not insist but instead invites us into the unfolding of the Kingdom.

What is God inviting you to do today to share God's love and grace with the world? Will you be bold enough to say yes, even if you don't understand all of the ramifications of your actions?

The world needs more people like Mary. 

Prayerfully yours,

Sherri
