ABC Wednesday- M

                                                Another ABC-Wednesday M

                                                          MISTY MORNING




                                      Last Sunday hubby and I visited the St. Benedictine MONASTERY

MAPLE Trees


MOTHER MARY


Mary is our Mother!

John 19:26-27: When Jesus saw his mother, and the disciple whom he loved standing near, he said to his mother, "Woman, behold, your son!"  Then he said to the disciple, "Behold, your mother!" And from that hour the disciple took her to his own home.
(**Note - Just as Eve became the mother of all of the living at the foot of the tree of knowledge of good and evil, Genesis 3:20, just so, Mary becomes our mother at the foot of the cross, also called a tree in Acts 5:30. John was standing in for all of the Church here.  Notice how Jesus uses the universal term "Woman" here, rather than "Mother", and how he does not address the disciple John by his name.  This implies that Jesus is referring to The Church as a whole, rather than just John and Mary.)
Revelation 12:17: Then the dragon was angry with the woman, and went off to make war on the rest of her offspring, on those who keep the commandments of God and bear testimony to Jesus. And he stood on the sand of the sea.

Your misty captures are really dreamy! Maples are some of my favorite autumn trees. And your words about Mary are full of wisdom.
