Mary, may have had an inkling. But, did she truly know? Did she really know when she kissed her little baby, two something thousand years later people would be dedicating an entire holiday to his birth?
Mary, may have had a feeling. After all, she was visited by Gabriel an Angel, before she became pregnant. The Angel, predicted the future. But even having been told, by a paranormal being, did she really, truly know?
I’ve always wondered what was the appeal in knowing the future? If you know that you will die at age 93, in your bed – would you live your life differently? Perhaps if your doctor changed that outlook, and told you it’s more like in eight months, yes then you may make some different choices.
Would you worry less, if you knew the future? Or, would procrastination take over your every day? And even if you knew the future, fortune-telling, does not give you the super power of high-in-sight, now.
Similarly, we may meet someone in the street today, and ten years down the road – the person can be living a completely different life. He could be your boss. He could be a street sweeper. You will just never know. Better today treat him with dignity. Or let me ask you this? Do you want to take a walk on a dirty street, or a clean one?
Mary may have been told, but in the moment she kissed her little baby, to her she kissed the face of love. Not because he was Jesus, but because he was her son. He could have turned out a beggar, or the heir to David’s throne. It did not matter, the moment she kissed her little baby. When they locked eye’s the whole world of possibility stared back at her.
As the Christmas time approaches, I’d like to wish you a very merry Christmas. When you look towards the new year, I hope it stares back at you, the way a baby stares at his mother.

I’m not sold on predestination, so I think there is no knowing. Well, at least for us, though I think you are 100% correct that Mary would have treated Jesus as her son, and most likely did all of the things mothers have done with their sons since humans walked upright. A quick example, all of those pieta paintings and sculptures are of a mother holding her dead child, not a God, a very human thing. But back to the subject, no, I wouldn’t want to know.
