Anna really is one of the "grand dames" of the Bible. Imagine living for 60+ years as a widow in a society where widows had no position, no security, no power at all! And this little lady spent it all in prayer. Luke tells us that she came upon the little family there at the Temple, "gave thanks to God and talked about the child to everyone." A good summary of our call (and not just at Christmas): to give thanks to God and talk about Jesus!
