Today, I was blessed with the opportunity to be a contributor on the wonderful blog, FLOURISH! I was asked to write something relating to Christmas and the holiday season so I chose to write about one of my favorite women in the Bible, Mary.
Here’s a tidbit:
Mary’s whole perspective on the news that she would be carrying the Christ-child was seen through the eyes of gratitude. Instead of viewing nine months of pregnancy as an inconvenience, she saw it as an opportunity. There was a chance that she could have been shunned by society by her unmarried status but instead, she chose joy. In fact, Mary is so aware of her lowly state that she recognizes the importance of God noticing her by declaring that she is blessed.
