Today's reading was Luke 2-- the birth of Jesus and His heavenly announcement.
Luke 2.19 "But Mary treasured all these things, pondering them in her heart."
Luke 2.51b "...His mother treasured all these things in her heart."
Mary did not overlook the small things... a kind word, the story of the angelic host, Jesus' obedience to her and Joseph.
I need to look for and thank God for the small things in my life... a kind word from my daughter, a hug from my son, my husband offering to do some of my chores.
Dear God --- help me to see and acknowledge the small blessings in my life. Amen
