This image was spotted on a picket fence by a group of women gathered for Ponder This. The image they saw was Mary holding the baby Jesus. Do you see her? Her dark hair is falling around the small head of a baby wrapped in a blanket. Below the blanket is a pale blue dress with the top set of staples forming her shoes.
This image especially complements Ponder This because Mary was keenly aware of the miracles that were going on around her, and she was able to grasp the true meaning of events in her life. As it says in Luke 2:19, “Mary pondered these things in her heart.”
Mary’s life was filled with dramatic manifestations of God – the same loving God who manifests Himself in our lives, too. However, if we are to see Him, we need to ponder just as Mary did.
Take another look. Do you see her now?
