Her words caught my ear...
"Mary, His Mother"
and as I peaked over her shoulder
there was a cross
an angry mob
The actress playing the role of Mary was convincing
as she silently mouthed the words "my son"
and right there
in that moment
at 40,000 feet
traveling 550 mph
I finally understood
that the only way that she could have
was by remembering
who He was
the revealed plan and the purpose of His life
The only way that she survived that heart wrenching moment
was in remembering that
This was ordained by Him
when we arrived home from work
we were met with an unbelievable sight
with our ceiling now on the floor
And its funny how in that moment I found my way back to Mary
as I stood on soggy carpet
looking at the gaping hole where the ceiling once was and telling myself...
"This was ordained by Him"
and then I really
that the only way any of us can ever
life's heart wrenching moments
is if we also remember...
who He really is
