Day Three brings us to Mary's Song...
In today's box we find some sheet music to remind us of Mary's Song...
"And Mary said:
'My soul glorifies the Lord
and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior,
for he has been mindful
of the humble state of his servant.
From now on all generations will call me blessed,
for the Mighty One has done great things for me--holy is his name.
His mercy extends to those who fear him,
from generation to generation.
He has performed mighty deeds with his arm;
he has scattered those who are proud in their inmost thoughts.
He has brought down rulers from their thrones
but has lifted up the humble.
He has filled the hungry with good things
but has sent the rich away empty.
He has helped his servant Israel,
remembering to be merciful
to Abraham an his descendants forever,
even as he said to our fathers.'"
Mary's life was forever changed by the announcement the angel made. Her response is one of praise and worship of God. She knows Who He Is and what He has done and she offers Him her praise. How can we praise Him this season, not for what we want or what we are expecting, but for Who He Is alone?
