By Mary saying, "Yes"

As Christmas approaches, my heart overflows with gratitude towards the Blessed Mother. 

When Mary was visited by the angel, she was apprehensive; however, because of her unwavering faith, she said, “Yes.”  She was willing to do the Lord's bidding and knew that nothing is impossible for God.
By Her saying, "Yes", we have a Savior ~
By Her saying, "Yes",  we have direction ~
By Her saying, "Yes",  we know how to live righteously ~
By Her saying, "Yes",  we have hope ~
By Her saying, "Yes", we are loved unconditionally ~
By Her saying, "Yes", we are never alone ~
By Her saying, "Yes", we can look forward to eternal life.

Can you imagine what life would be like had she said, “No”? 

“The day of the Nativity of the Mother of God is a day of universal joy, because through the Mother of God, the entire human race was renewed, and the sorrow of the first mother, Eve, was transformed into joy.”

~Saint John Damascene
