Day 24: O Holy Night

While Christmas Day is my favorite day of the year, Christmas Eve has always been my favorite night. It is a time filled with a sense of awe and thrilling anticipation for the coming morning. It feels as though anything is possible on Christmas Eve, and potential of what is to come is limitless.

“For nothing will be impossible with God. … Let it be to me according to Your word,” said Mary after Gabriel delivered the news. This faith would carry Mary through the highs and lows of her pregnancy.

Day 18: Do You Hear What I Hear
