Luke 1:41a

When Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting…

I have a friend who calls me from time to time.  I absolutely love to hear his voice.  As soon as I get the phone to my ear and catch that slight southern twang in his voice, my heart becomes light, a grin covers my face, my heart beats faster and my soul swells with joy.  I am filled with peace and delight at the sound of his voice.

So it is with Elizabeth and Mary.  There is something that happens in this exchange.  The sound of Mary’s voice is something special.  Mary / God is speaking and Elizabeth is thrilled.

Oh that we would respond in like manner when God calls our name!
