MARY

Why wife to a carpenter? Although
The royal blood pulsed, the rights
Of monarchy existed, your husband
Crafted in wood; each day's labour
Used energy, skill and mind. Nothing
Derived from you or him imbued
That Child of whom you were mother.
But it pleased God in His ways to choose
The ambience you both provided; righteousness
Of your unwilling‑to‑expose husband,
Subjection of your spirit, soul and body.
You observed perfection in childhood,
Pondered signs and growth, retained
Thoughts, memories and affection till
You could act as repository to His church.

  2. I enjoyed your verse...
    Mary has a special place in our home...and we honor her "yes."..like Bishop Fulton Sheen said, "Mary is like the moon...she reflects a greater source."
    I am your newest follower..pls follow back if you can.

  3. So long as we remember that she too is a sinner saved by grace.
