Merry "MARY" Christmas


Are you lost and confused in Life amidst struggles and pain?
Are you worried about what is to come?
Are you busy and tired preparing for Christmas?

Learn from the Blessed Virgin Mary. For her life, her simplicity, her humility and great Faith can help you and me.

Reading the Gospel Narrative of the Annunciation in Luke 1:26-38, it says all about how Mary was chosen among women to be the mother of our savior Jesus Christ, where she came from, how she said yes, and how she is full grace. Mary was the central figure in the story.
But notice in the narrative how it is all full of the presence of God the Father. “God sent the Angel,” “You have found favor with God “The Lord God will give Him the throne of David.” And it ends with “Nothing is impossible with God.”

We therefore realize that it is God’s Dream, God’s Call and God’s plan all over.
Yes, even in our Life. Let us not forget that it is all His will and His plan that follows.

We may be good in planning for our future, we may be wise in anticipating what is to come, we may be experts in preparing ahead of time, but in the end we realize that’s how far we can get, for it is God who decide.

“L’oumo propone ma Dio dispone,” Man proposes but God disposes.

Even in my Life there were times I thought I was good in planning for what is to come, that I was in control but then things happen differently and I realize God has other plans for me.

May we learn from the Blessed Virgin Mary who simply said: “I am just your handmaid. Let it be done to me according to your will.”

With this attitude in Life I believe our journey in life will be meaningful and our Christmas celebration will truly be Merry.

Merry “MARY” Christmas to one and all.

This is a site of "Leaps of Faith" experiences and reflections. Be it Philosophical, Theological, Practical or Personal. It is also a site of Biblical reflections. But Above all, This is a site for YOU and ME.

"Leaps of Faith"

"LEAPS OF FAITH" Can be a religious movement of a person, an inner movement of belief, of trust on the greatest power of all, The Supreme being..Our Creator and Maker..Our God. They can be resolutions of a person everyday in his life to move forward, to be a better person, and to start a new life. They can be decisions of a person in times of great uncertainties, when he is not sure of what will come or happen and he makes a leap of faith. They can be steps, difficult steps that a person makes on his way to change or to start anew. Or they can simply be a persons resolve to fly, to travel..to widen his horizons, to learn more about life and to grow. These are Leaps of faith we make everyday and in great moments of our lives and they are worth considering and reflecting.
