Today’s gift to you is the beauty of Mary, the mother of Jesus. Let me remind you that she was not perfect or sinless, but she did believe in God and His guidance in her life. She trusted Him. Back in that time, her pregnant, unmarried status could have gotten her stoned to death. Yet she remained trusting in the Lord and what an angel had told her. In your blended family, you need to trust God and follow His plans for your life. You may have had a rocky, sinful past, but God has a plan that will amaze you. Your blended family may be too tough to endure, but hang in there … He takes the impossible and makes miracles. You have that same beauty of Mary … it was her faith! Merry Christmas!
