say yes

Tuesday December 23rd,  Luke 1: 29 Mary was greatly troubled at his words and wondered what kind of greeting this might be. The understanding of the day was that when and if an Angel visits you, you just know the rest of your life is going to be a bit different, out of your control, or most likely, very, very short. All your plans are out the window and you are now either on a mission or shopping for a gravesite. I suppose you could say no, but Jonah among others would advise you against it. What lies before you is nothing less than an adventure. My son has a tattoo of Calvin and Hobbes going on an adventure on his back.  Like Bilbo Baggins in the Hobbit, what lays beyond that horizon can only be guessed at, and even then you will be wrong for the most part. All you know is that it will be an adventure and you will most likely not be alone during this, or any adventure that involves a calling from God.  For some it may be exciting, for others scary, and yet, somehow the thought of staying home and watching reruns on the tube just does not sound all that appealing anymore. So get out there and have an adventure with God, say yes to the call, or at least a strong maybe.  You will not be alone, no matter what evolves, God will be with you.
