This Christmas, God made me appreciate this one message, presence makes a difference!
Taking Mary as our model, her presence made her say yes to God and bring Jesus to life for us all. She was present to serve and give love to her cousin St. Elizabeth.
My Christmas prayer is that i may be able to heed to God’s call. To be able to be present in the places and to people where He wants to share his love and mercy. I am called to serve by being “present” to anyone who is in need, whether to someone who needs to answer his/ her questions in life or to one who just needs someone to hold their hands, i will be there.
This is my 2012 Christmas. All beyond gifts and celebrations but definitely full of wisdom as to how God wants me to see His “Child” in a manger. My heart is His manger and i will make it happen by sharing “His presence” that makes a difference!
Mother Mary, pray for our hearts. May we have a heart like you that is always ready to say “yes” and may we have that unselfish love to go out of our comfort zone to love others by being with them and by putting that “love” from your Baby Jesus in action. May we be humbled always and seek for others to be loved more than us. Amen.
Happy Birthday, Jesus. 🙂 Make my heart your manger.
