On this second day of Advent, we are one step closer to the Savior. In today's box we found rings as a symbol of the engagement of Joseph and Mary.
"This is how the birth of Jesus Christ came about: His mother Mary was pledged to be married to Joseph, but before they came together, she was found to be with child through the Holy Spirit."
I wonder how Mary felt. She had been visited by the angel Gabriel and told of God's plan. But now she would have to walk a difficult road in her love and obedience to God. Others would talk and question, but Mary trusted God and submitted her heart to His plan. And I'm so glad she did!
What challenging road does God have you on right now? Can you trust Him with your heart, as Mary did so many years before?
