Meditation on the Nativity

by Peggy Bowes

The Nativity:
And Mary kept all these things, reflecting on them in her heart. (Luke 2:19)

Children grow up so fast! In the blink of an eye, they grow from tiny babies to kindergarteners, then teens and before you know it, they're off on their own.

As mothers, we often wish that our children will get older. We sigh and say, "I can't wait for the day when this child can finally take his own shower so I don't have to bend over the bathtub every night." Then we sadly reminisce about those bygone days when he giggled and splashed in the tub.

Mary had the right idea, treasuring every moment of Jesus' life and reflecting on these moments in her heart. Each child is a precious gift from God and a huge responsibility. Live in the moment and enjoy your children. Keep a journal and write about the funny little things that they do. You will treasure it forever.

Mary Pondered - Action Speaks Louder Than Words
by: Anonymous

Mary pondered it all in her heart...

...Mary lived one day at a time. This is a concept that is overlooked in our busy society. The complete version of the Serenity Prayer puts words to Mary's action of pondering in her heart...

The Serenity Prayer

God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.

Living one day at a time; Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
Taking, as He did, this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it;
Trusting that He will make all things right if I surrender to His Will;
That I may be reasonably happy in this life and supremely happy with Him
Forever in the next. Amen.

The rosary will make virtue and good works flourish, and will obtain for souls the most abundant divine mercies. It will draw the hearts of men from the love of the world and its vanities, and will lift them to the desire of eternal things. Oh, that souls would sanctify themselves by this means.
