relating to mary...

You know - as in mother of Jesus.
i've heard different interpretations of what kind of a person she was - how much she understood when she offered, "i am the handmaiden of the Lord - let it be done to me according to Thy word..." (Luke 1:38)
But - in my humble view - she understood full well the implications of the offering she was making. i think she was very likely - an incredible girl...
But there's a different passage i was thinking of today.
It's also found in the book of Luke - (link here)
Twice in that second chapter, we're told that Mary "treasured these things in her heart" - in regards to the miraculous - the extraordinary - the unexplainable.
i like that.
i like how Mary chose to treasure certain words - or events - in her heart. The bible says she "pondered them in her heart"...
That's where i feel like i'm at sometimes.
Pondering - treasuring...
When i'm awed by His blessing -
absolutely humbled by His goodness -
amazed by His faithfulness -
