Mary - Inspiration to Ponder and Reflect

The Adoration Of The Shepherds
by Guido Reni (1575-1642)
I find intriguing the smattering of times the Bible mentions how Mary pondered or reflected upon some event or another.  I find Mary to be an inspiration to think before talking ... to follow hers example of pondering, reflecting, and keeping things in my heart.

When the Angel Gabriel Appeared to Mary
But she (Mary) was greatly troubled at what was said and pondered what sort of greeting this might be.
- Luke 1:29

When the Shepherds Came to See the Baby Jesus
And Mary kept all these things, reflecting on them in her heart.
- Luke 2:19

After Mary and Joseph Found the Boy Jesus in the Temple
He (Jesus) went down with them and came to Nazareth, and was obedient to them; and his mother (Mary) kept all these things in her heart.
- Luke 2:51
