Mom’s Quiet Place of the Heart
Following the ever so zealous shepherds visit, and their news broadcast about baby Jesus, it says “But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart.” (Lk 2:19) Our children by no means compare to the Savior of the world, and by golly they may never even reach the waiting list among the names of the Saints, but we moms like Mary, ‘treasure and ponder’ our children. Do we not? Our hearts have ached – agonized – celebrated and PRAYED. There are hours of holding and scolding, cleaning and crying. Yet at the end of the day, as our head lays on the pillow, our heart swells with LOVE. The quiet place of the mothers heart, “treasuring up and pondering them.”
Happy Mothers Day!
