I love to watch these 2 children sleep. It brings such peace to my soul. And especially at this time of year I wonder, what did Mary think about when she watched her infant Jesus sleep? The Bible says that she pondered the wonder of all that had happened in her heart when he was born. But what exactly goes thru a young mother's mind when she carries the Savior of the world in her arms? Did she realize that someday he would face such pain? Did she realize that the little boy who slept so soundly would someday free the souls of millions? Did she wonder if he would be hard to raise, given that he was GOD?
What would you have thought, if you had held the Savior in your arms that Christmas night?
