Our Lady's Garden
Three Days is a Lifetime
James speaks -
In His agony, Jesus prayed,
“Father, if you are willing to take this cup from me, still not my will but yours be done.” Jesus said yes.
Mary said, "Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord let it be done unto me according to your word!" Mary said yes.
Joseph prayed wanting answers and he got them. Joseph said yes.
Well I, we can't say that we said yes; but we did not say "no" and God has blessed us. We are still a family. We conceived and had two more beautiful children.
Our culture wants us to say, "No." It demands termination of a pregnancy in these challenging cases; but each one of us is here only by the grace of God. Saying no to him denies that grace.
St. Ignatius said that when he stood in the presence of God that all he could say was that at he at least did not do nothing.
