This is written from a Mother’s Perspective – specifically from Mary’s. I did a lot of research into what it would have been like, but this is STRICTLY my imagination, there is no guarantee any of this really happened or really were her thoughts. I do use scripture through out. However, it’s mostly how I think I might have thought if I were her.
A Mother’s Thoughts – Day 360
I can hardly believe the news we heard today. My heart aches for the mothers. My stomach is tied up in knots. Herod gave orders to kill all the boys in Bethlehem and its vicinity who were two years old or under. ALL of them! I can only imagine the anguish in Bethlehem.
Oh how I magnify God, He has delivered us from the hands of this treacherous King. My mind can just barely grasp the thought of all these babies being slaughter in hopes of killing my son! They were all killed because Jesus was born there.
Oh how true the words of Jeremiah tonight: “A voice is heard in Ramah, weeping and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her children and refusing to be comforted, because they are no more.” Great, great morning.
I can’t write anymore. The tears will not stop flowing. First in such sadness for these mother’s who arms are empty tonight. Then in joy that mine are not. Such mixed emotions. It’s almost too much to comprehend. Too, too much.
