Today, the first day of Advent, I am thinking of Mary, mother of Jesus. Her song, found in Luke 1: 46-55, is, I think, one of the most beautiful scriptures. Her surrender to God's will is so complete, so unquestioning, so grace filled. And, this song is one of the most lovely of the holiday to me.
If a wiser one should have had my place?
But I offer all I am
For the mercy of your plan
Help me be strong
Breath of Heaven-Jessica Simpson
