verse 38: “I am the Lord’s servant,” Mary answered. “May it be to me as you have said.” Then the angel left her.
God’s word for me this advent season is “listen.” I have been reminded nearly every day- it is time for me to slow down and take time to listen for God. I am too preoccupied with other things. But maybe also I am afraid to listen closely. What Mary heard from God’s angel did not just change her world. It changed the world. She listened.
Holy One, open my eyes and my ears for your direction. Amen
