Mary, the Father’s choice

By REV. JUDI WIEGMAN

In a small, insignificant village called Nazareth there lived a young woman named Mary.  She went about the daily chores in her parent’s home, met Joseph, who was to become her husband and began to prepare for her marriage.
The God of the universe looked down on fallen man. He knew He must redeem them. He did not go to a thriving metropolis. He did not go to a palace.  He sent an angel to the small, insignificant village, Nazareth with an important message for Mary who was “highly favored by Him.”
Her “song of praise” recorded in Luke Chapter 1, indicates her lowly estate in life.

Black Friday 2011 saw its share of bargain-fueled insanity, as shoppers lined up earlier than ever to take advantage of midnight openings and to get discounts at stores that even opened on Thanksgiving Day. For some stores, Thanksgiving is apparently the New Black Friday. Wal-Mart launched its holiday kickoff at 10:00 p.m., joining Toys ‘R Us and other chains that barely let the turkey get cold before opening their doors.

That’s saying something; too, considering the group’s been around for nearly 40 years, turning out an incredible 25+ albums while playing an unrelenting schedule of one-nighters that would make a vaudevillian dizzy.

I’ll keep rolling along,
Deep in my heart is a song,
Here on the range I belong.
Drifting along with the tumbling tumbleweeds.
