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:

bluebell fieldJust a beautiful glowing-blue flower.    Bluebells are known for laying themselves down in “carpets.”

bluebell vaMary 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.

Mary.   A life turned toward God and with a strong desire to “be there” with Him.
