She Said Yes
“To one who has faith, no explanation is necessary. To one without faith, no explanation is possible.” –Thomas Aquinas
Today is the Feast of the Immaculate Conception, when Mary said yes to the incredible and unbelievable call on her life. While fearful at first, she chose to be faithful to fulfill God’s will not her own.
How many things do we say no to when we should say yes, and yes when we should say no? I often choose yes far too often, distracted by the noise of the world. When quiet enough to hear that still small voice, grace gets me back on course yet again.
Christmas all began with a “yes.” She said yes and showed us we can too.
