  1. Denise,
    I can’t even fathom being told that I was going to bear the Hope of the World?? I can only imagine how these two women felt in their heart of hearts at their news?? I love the way the Lord works…only He would have a plan like this!!

  2. I love the sweet friendship between Mary and Elizabeth, and how God weaved their lives together in such a special way. Thank you for sharing this beautiful reminder of the way God used their lives for the extraordinary.
    Happy Sunday!
    (I cruised out to your website, and am so inspired! I love the 31 day challenge. That’s going to be part of my new year’s resolution to write every day. Thank you for sharing it, and answering the call to write!)

  3. That is awesome and very well put! Praise God! Hallelujah! Of course, there’s only one point that would have made it even more powerful, if I may. I was waiting for you to get to it. It would have been better if you had ended on Elizabeth prophesying over Mary after Elizabeth’s baby (John) jumped in Elizabeth’s womb upon hearing Mary’s greeting because that is the TRUE moment that “Hope met Hallelujah” as John whom Elizabeth was carrying was the forerunner to Jesus whom Mary was carrying. Be blessed.
