  1. I am definitely adding this book to my wishlist! I have really developed into quite the ‘planner’ – and I think reading this book before I’m pregnant will just put my mind/heart at such rest. Thanks for sharing it!

    I’m not a mom, but I’ve been enjoying this blog train. Every time I get to this mystery I think of what Fulton Sheen had to say in “The World’s First Love.” When Jesus asks Mary, “Woman, what is that to me and to you?” Sheen says that what He was really asking was:
    “My dear Mother, do you realize that you are asking me to proclaim my Divinity – to appear before the world as the Son of God, and to prove my Divinity by my works and my miracles? The moment that I do this, I begin the royal road to the Cross. When I am no longer known among men as the son of the carpenter, but as the Son of God, that will be my first step toward Calvary. My hour is not yet come; but would you have me anticipate it? Is it your will that I go to the Cross? If I do this, your relationship
    to me changes. You are now my mother. You are known everywhere in our little village, as the “Mother of Jesus.” But if I appear now as the Saviour of men, and begin the work of Redemption, your role will change too.”

    Gives me chills every time I read it.
