I'm with youI'm heading out of town for a badly needed break, but I wanted to let y'all know that I am reading. I'll try to be more articulate when I return. There is SO MUCH to think about in those first two chapters of Luke! I always wonder about the young Mary, and the older Elizabeth. Their meeting, Elizabeth's prophecy and Mary's lovely praise always move me. Then Mary stayed with her relative for three months. What do you suppose they spoke of? What do you suppose they prayed in their time together? It must have given Mary strength to go home and face the comments and stares and criticism.
Back in a few days, and I'll be reading with you all.
