10 Questions for Mary
If I may indulge, I have a few questions for Mary:
What was the look on the shepherds’ faces when they saw Jesus for the first time?
While you were changing Jesus’ diaper, did you ever think, I’m changing God’s diaper . . . ?
Was Jesus a fussy baby?
When it says in Luke that you “pondered all these things,” what was going through your mind?
Was Jesus a rough-and-tumble boy, or was he more a Mommy’s boy?
When you wiped blood from his skinned knee, did you ever catch yourself just staring at it, wondering . . . ?
Did Jesus talk to himself?
Was he popular with the other kids?
Did he ever do clumsy things that all kids do like spill his milk or break a vase?
Did you ever catch him gazing at the night sky with a faraway look in his eyes?
