Luke 2:7 nlt


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?

Luke 2:19 esv

Madonna & Child

Mary kept in her heart all she saw and heard.
Contemplating and considering what it all meant for her son.

When Mary had her baby in her arms do you think she felt
differently than any mother feels when holding her newborn child?

Blessings this day of grace,
