The Three, Women of Christmas

Anna

It seems we are always waiting for something. Something to begin, something to end. In truth if we counted the hours, we would find we spend many in the uneasy place of waiting.

Anna was a woman who was no stranger to waiting. To wait is to remain, to look forward to, to be in readiness for something or someone. Anna was waiting for one thing, Israelโ€™s redemption. She did not know how or when it would come to pass, the end was not in sight, hope could not be seen when she started her vigil.

Sometimes when we start a vigil of prayer, we can see no end in sight and we become tempted to just give up. We will learn much from Anna as we watch her persist in prayer through years of long waiting days and nights.

Each chapter of the The Three Women of Christmas begins with a poem. I’ll be sharing these over the next several weeks. ๐ŸŒฒ๐ŸŒฒ๐ŸŒฒ

 

The Three, Women of Christmas

Upcoming Project

It’s going to be quiet here for a bit.

I’m half way through a project that is close to my heart. I have taught the Women of Christmas in a verbal storytelling form for several years.ย ย 

Now I’m taking all of my notes and research and writing their stories down in a Christmas devotional.

 

I’ll mix in a little poetry and a lot of prose as I tell the stories of these three special women – Anna, Elizabeth and Mary.

I love that Jesus loves women and I love that they are instrumental in His coming to Earth.

I hope to have this little chapbook ready to go by the first of November, Lord willing.

I have a lovely artist friend who is designing the cover and I hope to have print and ebook editions available.

Hold me in prayer when you think if me. ๐Ÿ’—
