In honor of the Dormition of the Theotokos (or Assumption of Mary, the Mother of God), I thought I would focus of her contentment. She is the supreme example of a content, Godly woman, of course.Pretty- we usually use the word 'beautiful' to describe the Mother of God, but I insist that her inner radiance made her a 'pretty' woman, too.
Happy- can you imagine a happier time in Mary's life as when she found him in the temple?
Funny- The wedding at Cana (Mary to Jesus- "They have no wine" Jesus to Mary- "Woman, why does this concern me?") always makes me smile when she turns to the wine steward and says, "Do whatever He tells you."
Real- Like so many mothers before and after her (but in sinlessness), Mary stayed during the suffering of her child.
