Imagine such an awesome kiss,
being pressed on the face of our Savior!
What was Mary thinking as she
kissed and cuddled this Babe in her arms?
Would fear have entered into her mind,
or was there only the sheer delight
in holding her Divine Child?
We know that she pondered
all that the angel Gabriel announced to her
because the Bible tells us that.
But, in this moment,
did she just give thanks that
Jesus had arrived intact
with no harm done on their long journey
I hope that she was only giving thanks,
unaware of all the trials
she would suffer as the Mother of God.
Go here for how Weistling was inspired
to paint this exquisite art.
