Day 17 of Lent...My Baby's Birthday!

Prayers and Scripture for Lent
The Annunciation of the Lord
Day 17
And Mary said,
"Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord; let it be done according to your Word",
and the angel departed from her.
Luke 1:38
Lord; our Father,
On this Holy day of Your Annunciation, when Gabriel came to the Virgin Mary, let us give you praise. You chose the lowly Virgin to bare your Son Jesus and she did so with complete TRUST. Never once did Mary doubt You, though she must have been scared. Help us to TRUST you like Your Mother did!
Help us to look into the hurt faces of our world and the hurt places in our heart and TRUST You with it.
Your yoke is easy, burden light...let us sit in that promise with complete TRUST.
In the name of our Savior,
Cooper Bright light and big surprise Leader Wise Kind and caring...even in the little ways Gentle Brave Sensitive and Empathetic Adventuresome Clever and hysterical My Baby! When you came into our lives 10 years ago, you were a surprise and I can't say i was fully equipped to deal with a new baby and a 14 month old. I was a mess. But, God knew you already and how much our family needed you. Needed your loyal faithfulness and gentle leadership. You humor and wit. You completed us. I am so proud to be your mommy and I truly admire you. I love you! Mom xoxoxox
