Every Family Needs a Mary

January 1st my mother in law’s birthday.    When she prays, the whole family knows it  Now, as a widow of three years,  she experiences God in a new way.   Today is also the Virgin Mary’s feast day.   We celebrate her role in her Son’s, the new Moses’ church.    Honoring family is a  great way to celebrate the New Year.

Rumor has it that Jesus’ mom was the most beautiful woman in history.     And yet, she resisted the pleasures of this world and received God’s Word with joy and obedience.    Whether we believe in Mary’s prayers or not,  she understands your struggles in the power of Jesus’ presence. 

Ask the members of your family the blessings of Numbers 6:

The LORD bless you and keep you!
The LORD let his face shine upon
you, and be gracious to you!
The LORD look upon you kindly and
give you peace!
