Today is a perfect day for celebrating God and the Gift He gave us so long ago. Last night, on Christmas Eve, our family watched the movie The Nativity Story and we are still talking about it today. As church kids we have heard this story a million times. In the re-telling it sometimes loses its power. This movie, however, put a fresh spin on the ancient tale.
Mary was a real young woman with a typical everyday life. She heard directions from God but questioned her own ability to hear. She found herself in an unimaginable situation and found out that her girlhood faith could sustain her in the middle of her grown-up world. This is the testimony of a Rare Rock.
Merry Christmas! And may you find the same strength for your life today that Mary found for hers on the first Christmas.
