No religion bashing please. This is something special and sacred to me, and many other women here. If you are not a believer, I ask that you please be respectful as it pertains to this post.
I sat this morning and watched my 18 month old sleeping in his crib. His tiny hands, his tiny mouth . . . my entire heart filled with love for him. It made me think of Mary, when Jesus was about this age. Did she look at him as I look at my son? Filled with all the awe and wonder that only a mother can know? Did she love him as much as I love mine?
I remembered what today was, and it brought tears to my eyes.
I wonder what it must have been like for her to watch him die. To watch as he was severely tortured, taunted, spat upon, and abused. To sit back, helpless, and watch her son seemingly senselessly ripped from this world. What did she think about when her fellow Jews cried “Crucify him!” (Cont.)

God was with her, and she knew that this was His will. The Lord specifically chose her because she had faith in Him from the beginning.
