The first step toward the "secret place of the Most High" (Psalm 91:1) begins with a desperate, hungry heart. This longing draws us to seek true, deep intimacy with Christ. One can hear the cry of David's longing heart in Psalm 42:7: "Deep calls unto deep at the noise of Your waterfalls; All Your waves and billows have gone over me."
And you shall call his name Jesus

"Blessed Art Thou among Women" by Walter Rane. "The angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a virgin named Mary. He said, "Behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, & bring forth a son, & shalt call His name Jesus. He shall be great, & shall be called the Son of the Highest. The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, & the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee; therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God." (Luke 1:26-28, 30-35)
Blessed Art Thou among Women" by Walter Rane. "And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth, To a virgin...; and the virgin's name was Mary. And the angel came in unto her and said,....Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favor with God. And behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name Jesus. he shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest." (Luke 1:26-28, 30-32)
by-grace-of-god: And the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus. He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Most High; and the Lord God will give to him the throne of his father David, and he will reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there will be no end.” Luke 1:30-33 Painting: ‘Blessed Art Thou Among Women’ by Walter Rane
"Blessed Art Thou among Women" by Walter Rane. Day 8: verse 26. In the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent by God to a town in Galilee, called Nazareth, to a virgin engaged to a man named Joseph of the house of David. The virgin's name was Mary. Verse 28. And the angel came to her and said, "Rejoice favored woman! The Lord is with you." Verse 29. But she was deeply troubled by this statement, wondering what kind of greeting this could be. Verse 30. Then the angel told her: Do not be afraid, Mary for you have found favor with God. Verse 31. Now listen; You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you will call his name Jesus. Verse 32. He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Most High and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David. Verse 33. He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and His kingdom will have no end." Verse 34. Mary asked the angel," How can this be, since I have not been intimate with a man? "Verse 35. The angel replied to her, "The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. Therefore the Holy One to be born will be called the Son of God. Verse 36. And consider your relative Elizabeth- even she has conceived a son in her old age, and this is the sixth month for her who was called barren. Verse 37. For nothing is impossible with God. Verse 38. " I am the Lord's servant", said Mary, "May it be done to me according to your word." Then the angel left her.(Luke 1:26-38) CH.
"Blessed Art Thou Among Women & Blessed is the Fruit of thy womb, Jesus" A little true story for you. In 2013 I collected my 87 year old Mother on Christmas morning from Hospital to take her to my home so she could spend Christmas Day with me & my family, her family. As I was helping her into the car she looked at me directly & out if the blue asked me this "Tell me again how Jesus was concieved if Joseph was not his Father." This is from a life long devote unquestioning Irish Catholic (admittedly suffering from vascular dementia, which ironically seems to be freeing her mind wonderfully in this new 'questioning everything' way). I replied, "well to quite what we were force fed in Catechism "The Angel of The Lord declared unto Mary & she conceived of the Holy Ghost" "But what does that MEAN Son?". "Well it means that somehow miraculously the 'Holy Spirit', God, in one of his three manifestations miraculously entered one of the Virgin Mary's Fallopian tubes & fertilised one of her eggs.That magical embryo grew into Jesus & was born nine months later Mam." She replied "Sure that's all my eye! Would it not have been simpler to explain it all if Joseph was really the Father?" This from a lifelong devote Irish Catholic remember, who towards the end of her life due to dementia ironically is freed of the chains of religious dogma & is starting to question, well, everything, from what day but is to how could the Virgin Mary give birth to a baby, any baby, let alone 'The Son of God. I feel humbled to be the one to gently respond as best as I can now to her new found profound penchant for asking questions, like a curious child who's mind has finally started to truly open, aged 87. It's never too late...
Kissing the Face of God - Morgan Weistling

Kissing the Face of God by Morgan Weistling - "This painting, this realistic rendition of mother love, is so very, very right. See Mary’s reddened knuckles, she was not a lady of leisure. The rough cloth of her head covering, no halo, but as down to earth and real as she is. She holds her beloved baby so securely and places her face next to his in a soft caress.
Kissing the Face of God - Morgan Weistling I love this because it shows Mary just a young mother with her baby.
Morgan Weistling (“Kissing the Face of God”): and other paintings of Mary and the baby Jesus from around the world.
Kissing the Face of God By Morgan Weistling -- . “I immediately thought of a composition with Mary and baby Jesus and how Mary had the privilege to hold God in the flesh in her arms. She cuddled and kissed him just as all mothers do with their babies. God chose to send his Son into this world in this amazing way — in pure humility.”
Christmas lesson Kissing the Face of God By Morgan Weistling -- "‘kissing the face of God,’ which I heard in a song many years ago,” said the artist. “I immediately thought of a composition with Mary and baby Jesus and how Mary had the privilege to hold God in the flesh in her arms. She cuddled and kissed him just as all mothers do with their babies. God chose to send his Son into this world in this amazing way — in pure humility.”
Kissing the Face of God The artist writes: This painting was first inspired by a song that I heard one day. The phrase “kissing the face of God” immediately struck me with this powerful image of Mary and the Baby Jesus. God in the flesh. Mary cuddled and kissed Him, just as all mothers do with their babies. My prayer is that the viewer will be struck, as I am, with the amazing way that God chose to send His Son into this world — in pure humility.

Kissing the Face of God - Morgan Weistling? My favorite Christmas art.
The word “Christmas” means “Mass of Christ,” later shortened to “Christ-Mass.” The even shorter form “Xmas” – first used in Europe in the 1500s – is derived from the Greek alphabet, in which X is the first letter of Christ’s name: Xristos, therefore “X-Mass. Today we know that Christ was not born on the 25th of December.

Diwali is the hindu festival of lights that takes place in october and november. The holiday is associated with Lakshmi who is the hindu goddess of prosperity. This interests me because it shows that in the hindu culture people worship multiple gods, which I think is really cool.

KINDLE THE LIGHT "Kindle the Light in yourself then kindle it in others - one by one. Just as when the lamp burns it consumes oil, so this Light will consume idleness, laziness, greed. Like spreading light by lighting one candle from another all around a room, so we should spread love from heart to heart." April 6, 1982, ~Mahavatar Babaji
