“But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart.” ~ Luke 2:19
Such simple words, yet the imagery this scripture invokes is powerful. Very powerful.
It seems like any Christian … especially any Christian woman … reading this passage would be moved. It is so captivating, so tender. In just the few words this verse uses, it really does capture the true meaning of Christmas.
I hope we all can find some quiet time this Christmas season to ponder and reflect upon what we are truly celebrating. I know for me this Christmas season has seemed even more special since I have had a newborn infant son in my home. Little Eli has provided a constant reminder to me of the glorious yet humble birth of our Savior. Our Redeemer, our Friend.
