3 Days  3 Quote Challenge —-for the Christmas holidays 

I have been nominated by a woman who has many hats —– Being Me Presently.  Thank you for the challenge.  It forces me to keep my goal of writing at least three times a week.    It also helps me celebrate this sacred holiday season.

The photo is from  Bolton Priory.  The announciation.  And is one of the treasured Pugin windows.   

  
Challenge’s rules:
Post three consecutive days.

You can pick one or three quotes per day.

Challenge three different bloggers per day.

For myself I will give the added challenge of writing about the Christmas holidays as my preparation this period of Advent.   I have always kept this time private and silently prepared with a retreat, recollection or other.   This time I will share it in this blog.  

Quote 1 Day 1

28 And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women.   Luke 1 verse 28

December 8 is the Feast of the Immaculate Conception.  Mary conceived without sin seemed the appropriate subject for today.   This verse is in today s Gospel in all masses.   For Catholics, this is a holiday of obligation.  

I arrived late to mass and I think this is my time to speak of Mary because she is also such a big part of Christmas. I realize that non Catholics believe the Catholic prayers of her make no sense.  For me, I will not argue or find fault with the Angel that declared this quote.  I will instead say the words as I truly appreciate the life of faith and grace revealed through the woman who birthed and raised Jesus.   So one could say I quote the angel of the Lord today.    

So with this divine quote, I challenge the following to try the 3 days 3 quote challenge

On The Road Through

The same verse is found in prayer:  Hail  Mary.  Full of grace.  The Lord is with you.  Blessed are you among women.  (Hail Mary.   A catholic prayer)

    Hello! I like how you use quotation to describe what you’re feeling and experiencing. I also like how you sum up with such positive attitude. Would you mind-for our first trial guest posting-post something similar like this on my blog? And let me know what kind of topic or writing you want me to post.
    have a blessed day!

    1. I will follow your lead. Sick today. But I found out that my son can take care of me when I am sick and part of being a mom is receiving his care. So @ambar I promise to work on my guest piece once I am better.

      2. Okay. How do you guest post on my blog? I like your Diy ideas. They are so “intentional” and meaningful. Holiday ideas are good too.
