Wednesday 14 December
I remember, at various stages of my children’s lives, thinking what will they become.
In Mary we have someone who we are told stored up the events and images of Jesus as a baby, as a toddler and as a teenager into adulthood. Not recorded formally, but Jesus lived and grew and thrived.
And oh how Mary must have wondered!
Paul in his letter to the Romans to be read next Sunday wrote: ‘Through Christ we have received grace….’
This is one of the reasons Mary is revered, she saw and wondered. What perfect grace she received and was involved with on a personal level.
Help me Lord in the diversions of today, to find that the perfect gift is given as you are a part of our lives. I pray for grace sufficient for today and sufficient to share with others. Amen
