Mary gave birth to a baby boy
who was God’s son and he was her son.
We tend to forget the human story of Jesus’ birth.
I think what was important to Mary, that night in a stable in Bethlehem,
was that her son was healthy, warm, and safe in her arms.
Have you thought of Mary simply as a mother with a newborn child
and her very human thoughts and feelings that night?
Blessings this day of grace,
