Virgin A Day - Day One

Last year I had the priviledge of joining in with other bloggers - serious bloggers - unlike myself, in Virgin A Day meme with the lovely Rebecca over at recuerda mi corazon
 

I could hardly contain myself, when I realized that December first was almost upon us, and the beginning of another 12 days of "Mary".  I have a special relationship with The Blessed Virgin, she is ever with me, whether I am aware or not.  I just love catching those special glimpses of her....





This is a new image of her I've not seen before.  I found it searching the web, and I don't know the artist, but would like to find out who it is.  I find it interesting that each artist has his/her own idea of how Mary looked.  Although she was definitely not fair skinned such as this depiction, I'm sure Mother Mary appreciates the beauty of it.  I love the sweet smile, it makes me smile too. 

 
 
 
 
Be sure to have a peek at recuerda me corazon for the other offerings of Virgin A Day - Mornings With Mary.  I'm sure you will be pleased with what you find.  Join in if you are so inclined!
 
Thanks again Rebecca, I am pleased to be a part of your project! 
 
 
Peace be with you,
Shannon

  1. Hi, Shannon! So nice to read your comment on my blog - thank you.

    I think that the beauty of The Virgin is Her ability to appear and speak to people in a form that they understand.

    Any chance you could turn off word verification? It's really very difficult to decipher. Thank you!
