Advent counting down to Christmas – Day 3

3rd December. Mary with a Bump

Today’s picture is of Mary looking both thoughtful and happy with her hand on her baby bump. Our picture is inspired by the verses in Luke that tell us that the angel said to Mary, “You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you are to call him Jesus…The Holy Spirit will come on you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So, the holy one to be born will be called the Son of God.” And Mary said: “My soul glorifies the Lord, and my spirit rejoices in God my Saviour,”

(Luke 1:31, 35, 46-47 NIV)
