And Mary said, “Behold, I am the servant of the Lord; let it be to me according to your word.” And the angel departed from her.- Luke 1:38
August 15th, is the feast day for the Assumption of Mary, Holy Mother of God. Having been the mother to Jesus Christ at the request of God, she finished her life on earth. She ascended into heaven where she was reunited with her Son. Mary is a true example of what it means to serve the Lord. If it was discovered she became pregnant out of wedlock, then she would have been stoned to death. But, she trusted in the Lord that He would protect her. She trusted Him and in return He blessed her. Mary ascended into heaven where she was reunited with her son and met God with open arms. Having finished her life on earth through serving the Lord, she is now able to spend eternity in heaven by Jesus Christ and God’s side.
