Mary Pt. 5: The Rest of Her Road

A grand calling is only awarded if one is faithful in the small steps leading up to it, but we often forget that living out, and actually fulfilling, a divine calling equates to a lifetime of faithful, daily, and underwhelming obediences. 

We get distracted marveling at the big moments, the angelic appearances, the life changing announcements, and then move on the next thing forgetting that finding out about the birth of Christ for Mary was only the beginning of a lifetime of continuing to say "yes," and of remaining faithful in mothering Jesus.
