Maybe the myrrh represented the humanity of Jesus. It seemed to foretell of the brutality that would be done to him.
This must have been one of those things Mary "kept and pondered in her heart" at the time that became all too clear later.
Wow Sally that was interesting... Thanks for such a great post...Have a beautiful day and enjoy that Florida weather...Happy New YearDonna
Praying you have a wonderful day!Blessings, andrea
Hi Sally, Hope you all had a fabulous Christmas. Interesting about the myrrh.. BUT--I keep wondering what you (or I) would do if we got pregnant with the Son of God inside of us??? Yipes---talk about a shock! SO--I keep thinking about Mary this week!!!!How's the new home????Hugs,Betsy
As usual, enjoyed your Sunday spiritual humor. You combined it all to be a true blessing to us.
I never stopped to think what myrrh actually represented .... how interesting!Hope you're all enjoying a blessed day! Myra (aka Mevely)
Interesting info, Sally! I hope you and your family continue to enjoy this holiday season...Christine
I have studied this. And I bet this is one of the things Mary "pondered" in her heart.
Interesting post, Sally.I've been catching up this morning and saw the photos of your beautiful new home. I love the color blue you chose.All the best in 2010!
I did not know that interesting fact about myrrh. I love all the beautiful prophetic words that point to Jesus as our Messiah. Thanks for sharing, Sally! I hope you had a great Christmas. :)
Blessings Sally!!! The gift of myrrh,symbolic of His appointed time of sacrifice...WOW...though this is meant as a funny...it's really something if we ponder all 3 of the gifts...none meant or intended for a baby...but so meaningful to what His life would hold and accomplish! I wonder if these were the traditional gifts for a King? Very interesting!I love your blue background, Sally!
Good post as always. I was thrilled that you got into your new home before Christmas. Now, I hope you are getting settled into your new house and that it already feels like home.
That is interesting, Sally. Glad you are enjoying your new home.
Sally, Enjoy the new year and your new home! Thanks for stopping by to read my post.
I had no idea that's what it meant. Thank you for sharing that Sally. Happy Sunday ♥
So cute. Makes me think of how kids feel about getting clothes for Christmas presents. I hope you have a wonderful new year.Charlotte
Sally this is funny for this time of year. I liked what Charlotte had to say.God Bless,Ginger
Sally I just looked at your Blue Monday pictures of your home. It is soo~~~~ beautiful. I'm so happy for you.Ginger
I know Sally. I think blogger made some changes some time ago. When people post to my blog or I post to others, I click their name after reading their comment. That will take me to their profile page. If they are like you and me and have multiple blogs, I have to scratch my head and wonder "which one...". Sometimes it's easy, sometimes it's not. I have some wordpress blogs on hold. I am thinking of moving my business (the photography) blog there. That photography blog often gets strange activity... LOL!
I meant to add, blogger used to have it where you posted the blog you wanted linked back to.
We just learned about this on Christmas Eve. But it does make you think of Mary's reaction to this gift.
The gifts have always been such a mystery to me, but I tend to agree with you on the myrhh.xoxoJane
Hi, Sally...hope your Christmas in your new, beautiful home was just wonderful.I'll see ya in the morning for Blue Monday.xo bj
I had heard this, but it bears repeating! :-)Hope you are having a blast this Christmas season...XO,Sheila... who is on blog break for a while yet! :-)
Congratulations on your new home! It's beautiful. By the way, my favorite color is blue but I don't think I have time to participate in another meme :).Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog and leave a comment.
Words can easily be our undoing. Casually tossed about with little thought of their impact or import, we talk without processing the value (for good or bad) what we way. Proverbs says "In the multitude of words, transgression in unavoidable." James say, "Be slow to speak, quick to hear, and slow to wrath." We would all be wise to carefully chose our words. Proverbs says, "Life and death are in the power of the tongue." I choose life, don't you!!!Blessings and thanks for leaving me a comment. May the Lord bless you now and in the New Year to come. And may the blood-bought Bride of Christ be "without spot or wrinkle" as we await the glorious appearing of our Heavenly Bridegroom.
We do know what it represents, but the cartoon makes me think. What kind of gift is that for a baby, they should have given him a toy too.
Nice cartoon. Just want to wish you a Happy New Year and may the Lord bless you richly!
I hope you have a wonderful 2010.
I just want to greet you a wonderful Holidays.Happy New Year too!Cheers and regards.
