mothers

a celebration for Jesus' mother.

A boy and his mother during a celebration for Jesus' mother in Milazzo, Italy.

It is amazing to see things like old roman columns that were around when Jesus was around. The time of Jesus was so long ago yet there are still remnants of that time. I think about how Mary held Jesus the child when I look at this photo and how her struggles as a mother could have been just the same as the struggles of mothers today. I think of how she relied on the Lord for provision and how Joseph had to make the money for the family. How her back must have been tired after carrying her tired son. How that son grew up and now is here.
