I remember hearing since I was a little kid that the world was going to end on December 21, 2012 - my 32nd birthday due to the end of the Mayan calendar. Of course we all that is crazy but it made for a little excitement. I had the BEST birthday!!! Really I felt so spoiled and loved. My favorite part was all of the sweet calls, texts and messages that I got from friends and family. It made me feel so loved. I feel so blessed to have such wonderful friends and family. Thank you guys so much!!
The day started off right with breakfast in bed. Matt made me a yummy omelet and toast. I had a little helper who ate most of it for me. Since getting better we cannot fill Kate up. She is about to eat us out of house and home!
God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth, a town in Galilee, to a virgin pledged to be married to a man named Joseph, a descendant of David. The virgin’s name was Mary. The angel went to her and said, “Greetings, you who are highly favored! The Lord is with you.” Mary was greatly troubled at his words and wondered what kind of greeting this might be. But the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary; you have found favor with God. You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you are to call him Jesus. He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David, and he will reign over Jacob’s descendants forever; his kingdom will never end.” Luke 1:26-33
