Every day for a year, starting on my 49th birthday, I did something I've never done before.
Now that I've completed that project, here's more of my adventures.
In the Roman Catholic church this is the Solemnity of the Annunciation, the day Mary said 'yes' to being the mother of Jesus. That means that Christmas is nine months from today.

I do all my Christmas shopping on Dec 24th at Walgreens.
If that works for you I'd say keep doing it!
When Mary was visited by the Angel Gabriel all those years ago, times were very different.It would have been a great scandal for an unmarried woman to become pregnant. Her family would be shamed and she would most probably have been shunned by everyone. It was even more outrageous to claim that the baby is the Son of God. That would have been blasphemy surely!Yet despite her fears of shame, rejection and ridicule, not to mention fear for her own safety, Mary trusted God and said "Yes".She agreed to be the Mother of Jesus. Thank you, Mary.God bless, Kathy, you and your family.
The older I become the more I'm in awe of Mary's agreement.
