Forever treasured

What a sweet reminder we see in the life of Mary as she treasured the experiences she shared with her young child.

She captured the tender moments. She did not let them pass without relishing them, cherishing each and every one and writing them as memories on her heart.

Babies grow up fast. Life does not wait to enlist their services. Before we know it, we look up and they are gone.

But like Mary, we can pause. We can freeze time if only for a moment and treasure the memory of the little blessing that was ours if only for a while in our presence but forever in our hearts.

“Mary kept all these things in her heart and thought about them often.” Luke 2:19

“And his mother stored all these things in her heart.” Luke 2:51b
