The baby announcement is an exciting time for every young family. Many families plan creative ways to tell their loved ones that they’re expecting a baby. Special photographs, hand made notes, or symbolic gifts open their eyes to the exciting news. Reactions caught on video can be priceless.
God chose a unique way to share the Good News with Mary. He sent an angel. Gabriel announced the news, and Mary believed. She had some questions about how it would all work out, but in the end she believed the angel’s message. Read about that encounter in Luke 1:26-38
One of my regular prayers is that God would give me the faith of Mary. Faith to believe the impossible, and to be open to the plans that God would make in my life for the benefit of others. Lord, help us to pray, ‘Let it be to me according to your will!’
