My niece recently gave birth to a baby boy. I’m not sure there’s anything sweeter than a newborn baby. I still think it’s a miracle how we can carry them for 9 months while they grow and then at just the right time, they enter the world.
As Mom’s, we love our children deeply and we want to protect them as much as we can from this harsh world. I imagine Mary, the mother of Jesus, felt the same way.
I’ve often wondered what Mary felt the first time she held Jesus in her arms, the first time she smelled His sweet scent, the first time she felt His tiny fingers curl around hers.
Luke 2:19 (NLT) says, “but Mary kept all these things in her heart and thought about them often.”
Isn’t that just like a Mom to remember all those precious first moments of meeting your baby? How many times do we talk about their birth and share it with others?
I read this quote about Mary, Most Moms think their children can walk on water. Mary’s Son actually did.
I wonder if Mary knew, really knew, that her Son would change the lives of so many–one pair of blind eyes, one set of broken limbs, one soul at a time.
Did she know that her Son would save the world?
I heard this song a few weeks ago and couldn’t wait to share it with you. I don’t know if this group of singers are christians but I think God can use anyone to give hime glory, amen?
Have a blessed Sunday!
