I found myself recently chatting with two teachers, one had given birth and one was pregnant. I found myself reflecting on the visitation afterwards. I imagined Mary and Elizabeth today, what would it look like, and how would they feel? As I recalled the two teachers supporting each other, it seemed to be so similar to Mary and Elizabeth. She would be so excited to see her cousin Elizabeth, and yes i'm sure she would wear jeans today!
They would share in their awe for what has is happening inside them both. In the spirit we are indeed born anew, new things grow within us when we are brave enough to say yes.
I hope my artwork reminds you that God is longing to be born anew with you today too. May the cards help us to remember God in our midst today.
Much gratitude and Joyful wishes...

Within a few days Mary set out and
hurried to the hill country to a town of Judah, where she entered Zechariah’s house and greeted Elizabeth. As soon as Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the child leaped in her womb and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit. In a loud voice she exclaimed, “Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb!
But why am I so favored, that the mother of the Messiah should come to me?
The moment your greeting reached my ears, the child in my womb leaped for joy. Blessed is she who believed that what our God said to her would be accomplished!”
