The strength to rise again and again is not for the faint of heart.
Like each new sunrise, Mary of Bethany's journey required an inner strength and faith that would permeate through the darkness of life's unexpected tragedies.
When her hopes and dreams came crashing down around her, Mary's life began to spin, seemingly, out of control. What she couldn't see, was that God, the faithful potter, was shaping her life into a valuable vessel. One mended and filled with the pure gold of the Father's love and destined for a unique purpose.
Held together by the sweet and calming scent of lavender and the memories of her mother's garden, Mary journeys on, learning how to defeat the night and radiate like the noon day sun.
