Today is an exciting day because it’s all about Mary! You know… the Lady who accepted Christ in her life and thus was the one who prompted Christmas in the first place!
Here is the ornament:
See? It’s Mary! The colors, by the way, were picked by my five-year-old daughter, who apparently has some great color picking choices.
Now, I made an entire book dedicated to the Joyful Mysteries of the Rosary (ahem, you can buy the book here), which includes an art devotional dedicated to the Annunciation. So, technically, I could just copy and paste the pictures from my book here.
But… as awesome as those pictures are — and trust me, they are awesome! — I figured I would find even more pictures for you. Because, let’s face it… there are so many beautiful pictures of Mary. 🙂
And so, with no further ado… the scripture readings of the day!
…all right. I admit it. I included one picture from my book, The Joyful Mysteries, in this blog. But, you have to admit, it’s a beautiful one, don’t you think? 🙂
