Why is it that the best stories and most memorable events are filled with human trauma and trouble? Crisis always brings out the worst and the best in us.. but it is here we get to know ourselves. Here we are forced to reckon with our innate selfishness and are prompted by the Spirit to give ourselves to the need. Mary unhesitatingly gives herself to God because she already trusts Him , but she knows it has a price. Thank you for that legacy, Mary.
But most of all “thanks be to God for His unspeakable gift” II Corinthians 9:15.
