And this shall be a signe vnto you; yee shall find the babe wrapped in swadling clothes lying in a manger.
– 1611 King James Bible
I often think of Mary and her feelings of absolute pure virgin Love for her special baby, Love that only a mother whom having nurtured and carried her child in her womb for many months may know. A mother whose body bears one heart beat through Him becoming two. A miracle.
Love is the closest to God I have ever been.
A warmth of the most perfect temperature
Unimaginable unless experienced
The ultimate pleasure
Deeper more surer than instinct
A blessing-your first night
One now two, but still one
To hold your new baby
The silent sharing secret time together
For eternity I am now your mother
So sacred, so real
I thank you for my completeness
So peaceful, so true, so deep
I thank you.
I Love you.
Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart.
