Every time something amazing happens in Mary’s life, she pondered it in her heart. We see her pondering the angel Gabriel’s greeting at the Annunciation, pondering the arrival of the shepherds who told of a great heavenly host that told them of the Messiah, and pondering Jesus’ response in the Finding in the Temple.
I always note the silence in pondering. And Mary’s heart. It’s an internal response, drawing near God’s heart. A hiding away, if you will, to be with God.
May this sticker be a reminder to be like Mary and draw near God at all times, in all things.
