Nativity of the Theotokos

Today we celebrate the birth of the God-bearer, Mary most holy--the woman who's "yes" changed the world. Many "yes's" have changed the world--every time a couple says yes to life, the fabric of the universe is changed by the creation of a new and eternal soul. Think how excited Joachim and Anna must have felt when they found out, nine months before, that they would have a child. I can only imagine how happy Anna must have been to finally hold her daughter, after so many years of waiting. Truly, they were a blessed couple who trusted fervently in God's promise.
Today is also my sister's birthday :)
