Luke 1:39-45  New International Version (NIV)

Mary Visits Elizabeth
39 At that time Mary got ready and hurried to a town in the hill country of Judea, 40 where she entered Zechariah’s home and greeted Elizabeth. 41 When Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the baby leaped in her womb, and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit. 42 In a loud voice she exclaimed: “Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the child you will bear! 43 But why am I so favored, that the mother of my Lord should come to me? 44 As soon as the sound of your greeting reached my ears, the baby in my womb leaped for joy. 45 Blessed is she who has believed that the Lord would fulfill his promises to her!”

Until next time…

  1. I agree they remind me of my childhood (and my Mom's tree/bowl of ornaments). I love the vintage ornaments.

  2. There is nothing like my childhood Christmases. Things were so different back then :-)


  3. We have a few vintage mixed in with our overflowing tree!
