Do you ever think about Jesus’ mother? Her courage, grace, strength—her faith.
Mary is one of the many people I look forward to meeting in eternity.
Before the Holy Spirit lived inside us all, she housed the Lord inside her womb—growing the baby Savior in secret.
I picture her face as He took His first steps—bright eyes beaming with joy and pride at her diapered baby boy’s wobbly achievement.
She knew His favorite meal and His preferred reading spot. She washed His clothes and coddled Him when He was sick.
She and Joseph were in attendance for all His awkward stages; they watched him grow—from baby to toddler to child to teen to man to Savior.
I think about the faith of a quiet girl, turned mother of God. Tweet This
Mary’s Creator, somehow now younger than she. The Mystery of it all.
A mind can barely hold the miracle–the glory–of Heaven’s Boy.
One day, we’ll know as we’re known.
We’ll sit at a welcome feast among nations of believers—the Lamb our connection, our link, our bond.
Merry CHRISTmas, friend. May the Savior’s presence be ever-real to you in this season of His birth.
