Luke 1:26-38

26 In the sixth month of Elizabeth’s pregnancy, God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth, a village in Galilee, 27 to a virgin named Mary. She was engaged to be married to a man named Joseph, a descendant of King David. 28 Gabriel appeared to her and said, “Greetings, favored woman! The Lord is with you!”
29 Confused and disturbed, Mary tried to think what the angel could mean. 30 “Don’t be afraid, Mary,” the angel told her, “for you have found favor with God! 31 You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you will name him Jesus. 32 He will be very great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his ancestor David. 33 And he will reign over Israel forever; his Kingdom will never end!”
34 Mary asked the angel, “But how can this happen? I am a virgin.”
35 The angel replied, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the baby to be born will be holy, and he will be called the Son of God. 36 What’s more, your relative Elizabeth has become pregnant in her old age! People used to say she was barren, but she has conceived a son and is now in her sixth month. 37 For the word of God will never fail.”
38 Mary responded, “I am the Lord’s servant. May everything you have said about me come true.” And then the angel left her.

  2. A beautiful post, Kathy. I hope you and Joe had a good day and I know you will get a kick out of my post today!(smiling). God bless you-and I love the Celtic women!

  3. Thank goodness Mary said yes!! The Celtic Women are great entertainers.

  4. Thank you so much for sharing the scripture 2nd Advent Sunday. I didn't grow up with advent in our church. It's only in the recent years that I've started to read a few advent books. The Celtic Women are amazing singers and I enjoy their work very much. Thanks for sharing. Now pardon me but I need a blanket over my lap. It's very cold outdoors and maybe snow will appear this week...that's the forecast! Take care!

  5. Thank you for the beautiful music. The scripture & song warmed my heart.


Thanks for visiting. I love hearing from you. I often reply to your comments, so feel free to check back.
