|King Family Christmas Tree ~ 2009|
This is my favorite time of year. I love this season, because it helps not only myself, but many people reflect on the good things of the year. We begin to reflect on the miracle of Jesus' conception and birth, and we realize how BIG God really is. For me, I am spending time in the Word reading the "Christmas story" throughout this month (It begins at Luke 1:26). The next few weeks at church we are having a series called "The Gift", and if yesterday is any consolation and insight into the next few weeks, I am honored to be in such an amazing church.
I honestly can't imagine how Mary would have felt. What was she doing when the Angel appeared? Was she helping prepare a meal? I am a lot like Beth Moore, in that I am into details, and there are so many of those left out of the Word. (Maybe to save something for Heaven eh?) Anyway, I can't imagine being a young lady, awaiting marriage to have an Angel come to me (little ol me) and say I was going to birth the Savior of the World. Wowzers!!
