I can only imagine that is the closest feeling to what Mary felt when Jesus was born that I'll ever experience. She felt this enormous pressure and anxiety of not knowing exactly what the future had in store for her. But she was gifted with knowledge that the baby in her arms was the Savior of the human race. That had to have outweighed any anxiety Mary felt.
As we enter a new year I hope we choose to feel the excitement that Mary must have felt. In 2021, resolve to feel excitement at the possibilities instead of anxiety at the unknowns.
Have a Happy and Blessed New Year,
