keeping sabbath


But Mary kept all these things and pondered them in her heart.

Luke 2:19

There are times when you happen to be glancing at a loved one....

perhaps they are filling a glass of water at the fridge,

or sweeping the kitchen floor,

or watching a certain commercial on TV,

and your heart is filled with such love for them.

You could never put it into words.

It would be like trying to write down the light 

that shines through the window and glistens on their shoulder.

That is when I think of this verse... 

and the earlier one -1:46

My soul doth magnify the Lord.


  1. Amen. Beautifully said.

  2. I had one of those moments yesterday when I looked out the window at my husband as he was shoveling a path through the snow to the bird feeder. Thank you for your beautiful and thoughtful words today.

  3. So true. You've captured that moment where it feels like your heart could explode with love perfectly.

  4. Absolutely so true, and you said it perfectly. I like the trying to write about the light shining through. :)

  5. This is lovely and so true!

  6. Such a lovely way to express that which is so hard to express.

Deep peace of the gentle night to you.
Moon and stars pour their healing light on you
