When I was almost 16 years old, I dreamed of receiving a car.  I knew with our family finances it was a dream that would not be realized.  Then a few days before my birthday, a friend took me home from church and there on our driveway was a yellow Mustang!  I was so excited I didn’t even thank her for bringing me home.  I quickly rushed into the house only to find the yellow Mustang belonged to the young man giving my father a bid for some work that needed to be done to our house.  I don’t think I ever told my parents about thinking the car was for me and how crushed I was when I realized this was not a gift I would receive for my birthday.      

I wonder if Mary ever dreamed about what her first child would be like?  I wonder if Mary ever dreamed about an angel coming and giving her a message from God?  I am fairly sure if she had such daydreams they might not have included becoming pregnant in a completely new way and giving birth to and becoming responsible for the safety of the Son of God.  Life is filled with two kinds of gifts—ones we long for and really do not need AND the ones that come with a cost we cannot imagine, yet they are the gifts we need the most.  Mary got the gift of a totally new relationship to God and both the joy and pain of becoming a mother and a co-parent with the greatest Parent of all.

 Father God, how tender it must have been to see your Son born a human baby.  As you saw Mary care for him, as you gave Mary and Joseph the strength to be Jesus’ human parent, your Father Heart must have swelled with pride.  Grant that as we parent our children, as we love them and discipline them, we will make you proud of our efforts, too.  Amen
