Mary is an important example of how the testimony of a believer reflects the love of God, proclaims him and encourages others to be faithful and fruitful.
We shall call her “blessed!”,*
not merely memory, but her in heaven, yes.
She, Immanuel-bearer, provoked jealousness,**
so that we the Body should hold His Holiness.
Maria saw first-hand, felt faith grow for months,
mercy formed, for the first time, the preexisting One.***
Why was she favored, why indeed her Son?
No one was spared to show the Father’s Love.****
He would stir the nations,
her heart be made borderless
by the sorrow of losing
Messiah on that life-size crucifix.+
But joy would always conquer,
help the mother see the Son
as making her an instrument to suffer,
even to go mother John.++
The one who leaned on Jesus’ chest,+++
would need Maria’s song
and vision to prepare his pen
for Patmos’ revelation.++++

I just wanted to share something my fiance' came up with. She is a jewelry designer and has a shop with her daughter. They asked if I had an outlet for some of their items and I told them I would share it with everyone here at CF. So I started them an Etsy Shop account to showcase what they have done. And this is the first items! Check it out and let me know what you think!
Thanks so much! - Rex
