THE BLUEBELLS OF HEAVEN
(Busy today. Birthday celebrations and other things. Not much strength left for . . . blogging.) )
Bluebells to remind us of Our Lady today:
Mary was bereft of her Son at Calvary, and in another way at the Ascension. She lived without Him, then, for another twenty years, approximately. How she must have longed for Heaven — not to be in a wonderful, glorious “paradise” beyond the blue sky, but rather to be united with her Son again.
Understandable? Of course. A mother cannot live well without her son.
But there’s more here.
Her Son was not just her son. He was her Creator, her Lord, her God, and her Savior. As a human being, she would have also had the same human desire to be united with the One who made us. Then we will be “completely” the person we were meant to be. All will be well. All will be peace. We will be able to walk with our Holy, Loving Creator. It will seem so right. So wonderfully right.
Mary. A life turned toward God and with a strong desire to “be there” with Him.
