During this time of the year I'm reminded of the sacrifice of Mary, the mother of Jesus. Mary, at a young age decided to give God a yes for her life. Even considering the fact that she could have been killed for being a young pregnant woman, that didn't stop her from submitting her life to God. Let Mary be an example for us. When we submit our lives to the will of God, not only will He protect us, He will protect the life (gift) we carry and allow that gift to change the world we live it!
