The Childrens part chapter 5

This is Just a portion of the chapter that I am reading from the Home-making site
There is so much wisdom in this chapter it was hard to just take a piece. This paragraph made me tear.... maybe it's just me but i thought i would share it with you.

It was on the cross that Jesus paid his last tribute of love and honor to his mother. The nails were in his hands and feet and he hung there in agony. He was dying in deepest shame. The obloquy of the world was pouring its blackest tides upon his head. In the throng below, his eye fell on a little group of loving friends, and among them he saw his mother. Full as his heart was of its own anguish, it was not too full to give thought to her. She would have no protector now. The storms would beat in merciless fury upon her unsheltered head. Besides the bitterness of her bereavement there would be the shame she must endure on his account, the shame of being the mother of one who died on a cross. His heart felt all this, and there, in the midst of his own agony, he made provision for her, preparing a home and shelter for her. Amid the dark scenes of the cross his example shines like a star in the bosom of the blackest clouds, saying to us, “Honor thy father and thy mother.”

This is so good Jenn. What an example Jesus' mother was even to us as she had to release Jesus to His destiny. It definitely challenges me.
