Marian Monday--"Yes"

Linking up for the second week of Marian Mondays.

With a blog title like "Here I am the Handmaid of the Lord" how could I not talk about the Annunciation. The story of the Annunciation from the first chapter of Luke is a story filled with richness. The whole event can be summed up in one word, yes. Our Lady, without knowing what the future would hold, said yes to the will of God.

Each day our life is filled with decisions and on some of these days we are hit with decisions of the bigger variety. Whether the decisions is how do we respond to the person we are talking with or what is the next big stop of my life regarding my school, career, or vocation we must actively seek the will of the Lord, and like Mary respond with a Yes.

Mediate on Our Lady of the Annunciation, dive deeper into her yes, and say your own yes to to the Lord today.

Live joy.


  1. Thanks for linking up with us! It's so hard sometimes to know which things to embrace w/ a big YES! Always trying to learn proper discernment from Our Lady :-)

  2. Thanks for sharing and linking up, Natalie! Saying yes is a beautiful and sometimes challenging thing. I know for me it's not saying "yes" to life decisions, it is saying yes in times when The Lord asks us to suffer and to suffer with Him... That's my struggle.
