Sharing the Joy Thursday and a new meme celebrating the Life of Mary, Mother of Jesus


It gives me much joy this morning to have visited Meri of Share the Joy Thursday and discover a new meme.
Mary the Mother of Jesus has great meaning in my life.
The new meme is called 12 days of celebrating
Mary.

 
The icon that is woven through Catholicism,
The tribute to the Great Mother,
The Feminine Divine.
She is the soft face of God for Christians,
The lady of grace and compassion.

Won't you join the celebration

For day 1 I have chosen this Mary

The top image is Mary assumed into heaven body and soul as Queen of Heaven.

The bottom image is The Annunciation to Mary, from the angel,  that she was to be the Mother of the Savior.


This is the memory card we selected for our mother's prayer card at her funeral.




Linking this up with the new meme
At
Rebecca's

Lovely way to remember your mom in perpetuity. The images are so traditional but what my crazy eye caught first was that the card's images spelled out OM. It seemed all the more sacred to me when I saw that.
