Waiting With a Pregnant Mary

In Greenbush, the snow is falling straight down in huge flakes, coating each branch and twig with a thick coating of snow. The snow literally absorbs sound waves and the effect is a quiet, peaceful, pure white oasis. In the middle of this deep silence, the thought popped into my mind that it is also the first week of Advent,  a time of silent waiting when we light the first candle, the candle of hope. Let these paintings and icons of a pregnant Mary inspire you as you wait with her for the birth of Jesus.
