“But Mary kept all these things and pondered them in her heart.” – Luke 2:19
With all the things going on round about us these days, there seems to be very little time for pondering. Mary had just received some life-changing news, and scripture tells us she took the time to think and reflect about what lay ahead. So often we race from one thing to another, scarcely stopping to catch our breath. In the midst of whatever preparations are occupying you these days, try to take a few moments to sit quietly with God and reflect on what God has done and what God is doing, in the world and in your life.
