Mary Responds

Thank you again, Marcia Carole for your lovely addition to Echoes.
Merry Christmas Friends!

Instead of writing out Mary's Song of Praise, commonly known as The Magnificat, John Michael Talbot sings the first few verses at this link below.

Listen and savor.

Luke 1:46-49, ESV
And Mary said,
     "My soul magnifies the Lord,
          and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior,
     for he has looked on the humble estate of his servant.
          For behold, from now on all generations will call me blessed;
     for he who is mighty has done great things for me,
          and holy is his name. 

What are you hearing from God?

Next week we conclude this series with a guest post from my friend Theresa Thaete (who partnered with me on these Advent posts) on Isaiah 9:6.


  1. Peace comes from trust. Merry Christmas, Sue.

    1. You know that was one of my thoughts as well, Sally.
      Another thought that has surprised me is how much I can identify with Mary. "My soul magnifies the Lord ... He has done great things for me. "
