Treasures of the Heart...

"But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart." Luke 2:19

After the shepherds went back to Bethlehem to find Mary and Joseph and see the baby that the angel had told them about, Mary "treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart". When you treasure up something in your heart, it's as close to you as it can get. To Mary it must have been such a sweet affirmation of what the angel had told her 9 months ago. When I look into the face of my sweet baby granddaughter, it takes my breath away as I marvel at the miracle of life. Can you imagine Mary looking into the sweet face of her baby...the Lord Jesus? There's nothing else to do but treasure the thoughts and feelings and ponder them in your heart.

Father, I thank You for this day and a short school week. There are so many who are sick and need the rest this Christmas vacation will bring. Thank You for helping us get over our sickness. Lord, You have blessed us so much with our new grandbaby. As we look upon her precious face, there's no doubt that You are the Creator. How could anyone doubt? Thank You for the gift of life and love. Help us to be the grandparents that You would want us to be. Help us to "train her up in the way she should go". I love You. Amen and amen.
