And Mary said, “My soul magnifies the Lord, and my spirit rejoices in God my Saviour, for he has looked with favor on the lowliness of his servant.

Surely, from now on all generations will call me blessed; for the Mighty One has done great things for me, and holy is his name.

His mercy is for those who fear him from generation to generation.

He has shown strength with his arm; he has scattered the proud in the thoughts of their hearts.

He has brought down the powerful from their thrones, and lifted up the lowly;

he has filled the hungry with good things, and sent the rich away empty.

He has helped his servant Israel, in remembrance of his mercy, according to the promise he made to our ancestors, to Abraham and to his descendants for ever.”
– Luke 1:46-49

    I love Lent. Even as a little girl I tgohuht of Ash Wednesday as a day to draw nearer to the Lord, a fresh start, a true New Year’s Day! This was a beautiful post, and I loved the Doug Wilson post, too. May you and your family have a blessed Lent season! :)
