Christ was born in a stable in Bethlehem. While the world slept, angels rejoiced that God’s promised Savior had arrived and the journey from the manger to the cross had begun. The angel of the Lord appeared to Mary and gave her the news that she would be the mother of the Savior. Mary was probably between 13-16 years old when God chose her. The life expectancy of people was only about 40-45 years of age. One can only wonder all of the things that went through her mind during the pregnancy. Even after the birth of Christ one can only ponder all that Mary knew about her son. Did she really understand what God had done through her? Mary, did you know? Have a blessed day.
