I’ve long been a fan of Mary, the mother of Jesus. As a woman, how could you not be, really? She was visited by an angel, told she was going to give birth to a baby conceived by the Holy Spirit, and then raised Jesus! If ever there was a woman to look up to, this would be the one!
So I had a thought the other day. It says in Luke 2:19,
But Mary treasured up all these things, pondering them in her heart.
I love the emotion and depth that these few words evoke. She treasured all these things. She pondered them. It seems like such quiet beauty to me.
So my thought was this. How would I feel if the scripture actually said,
But Mary treasured up all these things, and pondered them on her blog.
Doesn’t that change the beauty of her entirely? What do you think?
