70 years ago today, another baby was born and is the reason I know The One whose birth we all celebrate today.
As an adult, her primary perspective on life is simply this: "But God…"
The One we celebrate today, captured her heart as a young child and laid out a path for her. A path fraught with danger, with turning points, with unforeseen heartache...but also with protection, with joy, and with unexpected blessings. BUT GOD, who is rich in mercy, not only rescued her, but KEPT her in his care through all the years and her primary aim has been to testify of His faithfulness.
I rejoice today in the birth of my Saviour Jesus Christ, but I also rejoice in the gift of my My Mother's birth.
Blessed are you among women and blessed be the name of your Lord whose steadfast love endures forever.
