December 23, 2018 Mary

Standard

Good morning, DearHeart.

Jesus. His Mother, Mary.

“But Mary treasured up all these things, pondering them in her heart.” Luke 2:19 ESV

As a mother, I ponder, just as she did. As my mother has done with my brothers and me. And, her mom with her.

There is no way a mother could possibly have words to express the fullness of that intricate threading of love for her child. No way they could know the depth no matter how many times they are told. I’ve asked myself, what did I do to deserve to be their mom? Mary must’ve asked herself the same. They are my most precious gifts. I humbly accepted the role of guiding them through childhood, and continue guiding them into the men and women God intends for them to be. It is one of the greatest honors of my life to love them. To pray them through. To notice their navigation of life. And, to know they are praying for me, too.

Even in the midst of the chaos and uncertainties and fears surrounding her circumstances, right there … in a little stable … a very young Mary taught us to

-be still,

-take time to be wrapped in the feelings of love and gratitude,

-be filled with the love a Savior,

-allow love to linger,

-open our eyes and see a world that is brightened by the love that you send from your heart.

Today, as our hearts prepare for a fresh glimpse of the Savior of the World, may your world in turn be filled with

peace…

and, love …

and, abundance …

because of His reflection you provide from the inside out.

Wake up.

Ponder.

Go.
