First Line Friday . . . Mary, Chosen of God

Friday, December 23, 2016

"Blessed are you, Mary, chosen of God."Mary is ordinary girl from Nazareth. She helps her mother with household chores, she daydreams about a handsome carpenter's son named Joseph, and at night she lies on the roof and contemplates at the stars. But one evening, a heavenly visitor comes with unexpected news; and her life is changed forever. Experience the life of the Messiah from the perspective of his mother, who must place her trust and obedience in Adonai, the Most High, as he fulfills centuries of anticipation in the middle of her daily life. Walk with Mary as she witnesses Yeshua grow, mature, minister, and even crucified; and then raised again, to the kindling of her new faith.

First Line:
With a sigh, Mary paused to sit on a nearby rock and tie the leather strap again.

Her legs still shook under the sheet, the smooth skin mottled and stained.

Happy Christmas Eve Eve! (One of my fave lines from 'FRIENDS' ever!)

My First Line this week is from 'Our Revolution' by Bernie Sanders:

"When we began our race for the presidency in April 2015, we were considered by the political establishment and the media to be a "fringe" campaign, something not to be taken seriously."

Happy Reading!

Merry Christmas!
