You Who are Highly Favored

The wonders of Christmas are often lost in the busyness of the season. So much to do…. The time required to get it all done often exceeds the hours given to a day. 

While the reason for the season is the Child… our precious Lord and Savior… the story begins with a young girl, Mary. The Scriptures say, “The angel went to her and said, ‘Greetings, you who are highly favored! The Lord is with you -- Mary, you have found favor with God.’” Luke 1. 

We as women are indeed highly favored; we bring into this world the children; we nurture them, we hold them close to our hearts, sing to them, bind their wounds and wipe their tears. We rejoice with them at the simplest delights they find exploring…the World the Father created; we comfort when they

hurt and assure them it’s going to be okay; that we are here and are not going to leave them. 

We adorn our refrigerators with artwork only a mother can see the beauty of. We see their greatness long before they are able to fill the place God has prepared for them. 

Year after year, day after day, we, like Mary, care for our child; we love; we nurture. As Mary left the manger, surely, her heart and mind were filled with the wonder of the events -- shepherds – the Wise Men – the Gift. What a story she would tell her child.   

After the season has passed, do not forget the reason we as women are highly favored. Tell the story again and again and again. The Christ child grew and grew. One day he gave to you the best of all the best – Himself – because He loves you!
