…”Twas the day after Christmas
.. and all through the house
… were the clutter of memories
… as Mom sat on the couch
Ok .. ok.. I promise I won’t do my whole post in rhyme..
…but as I sit here this morning.. I feel much like Mary as I “store up these memories and ponder them in my heart”.
As with everyone this season, I think we spent a little too much.. ate a little too much..
But this season I also slowed down a little..
For the first time in who knows how long..? I didn’t send out Christmas cards.
We made Christmas cookies.. but not enough to share with the whole community around us..
And my house is clean .. but not immaculate…
As we spent time all over the state with family this weekend, I thought about the talks I had with my mom-in-law.. the laughter that I shared with my nieces and nephews.. the memories I cherished with my daughter.. and all the moments in between..
…and just like Jesus’s mom?
I am hoarding all the memories in my heart to think about later..
What memories are you saving in your heart ??
“But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart.”
Luke 2:19 NIV
