With Holy Mother Mary, The Angel Gabriel is a manifestation of the GLORY of God and with Jesus John reports 'we have seen His GLORY'!
Then Mary is called 'Full of GRACE' by Gabriel with the confirmation that among all women of all time she is BLESSED! When we see the GLORY of JESUS whether our opinion is fully formed or not, we behold the Father's only begotten Son, FULL of GRACE and TRUTH.

When we encounter Jesus, Mary and others who come with Jesus from time to time - always, without exception they reflect the GLORY of Jesus. He is always, kind, gentle, joyful, peaceful, youthful and gentle. He is never wrathful, angry, bitter, condemning, or judgemental!
Further - He is always there. he never leaves or forsakes us. He can't wait to see you! He has so much love and life to share! So look closely... and the Holy Spirit will help. .

ONE MORE "FULL OF GRACE" STORY
The First Martyr, St. Stephen, may have been the only one that brought Jesus to His feet as He opened heaven for Stephen to see Him with arms wide open. Like Mother Mary and Jesus, He is described as a man FULL of GOD'S GRACE and POWER!
Stephen, a man full of God's grace and power, performed amazing miracles and signs among the people. Acts 6:8
When the members of the Sanhedrin heard this, they were furious and gnashed their teeth at him.
But Stephen, full of the Holy Spirit, looked up to heaven and saw the glory of God, and Jesus STANDING at the right hand of God. “Look,” he said, “I see heaven open and the Son of Man standing at the right hand of God.”
At this they covered their ears and, yelling at the top of their voices, they all rushed at him, dragged him out of the city and began to stone him. Meanwhile, the witnesses laid their coats at the feet of a young man named Saul.
While they were stoning him, Stephen prayed, “Lord Jesus, receive my spirit.” Then he fell on his knees and cried out, “Lord, do not hold this sin against them.” When he had said this, he fell asleep. Acts 7:54-60
Being FULL OF GRACE shows up in our life as conversation and how our life
communicates.. It is the overflow of our spending time with Him. At His Table we sit down empty-handed, hungry and thirsty. We feed on what He blesses and drink what He blesses. When we do, The veil of this life pulls back to reveal The King and His Kingdom.
Paul says, "Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone." Colossians 4:6
In His Presence There are No Shadows
Jesus is really looking forward to seeing you
He prepares the Table, a seat with your name on it and He becomes the meal
When we feed on the bread we feed on His glory
His glory anoints our head with the oil of gladness and revelation
He opens the eyes of our spirit
When we drink the wine we are cleansed and quickened again by His blood
As we drink, His life and fire course into and throughout our body and we are made alive
As we drink the ears of our spirit are opened to hear His Voice
Then Jesus shares His life, His love, His peace, joy and kindness
He is passionate, happy, and totally able to commune with us in reality
The result of being in His glory, we are transformed from glory to glory
One degree of glory to another
The Kingdom of God opens the windows to get a glimpse of the Kingdom of Heaven
The reality of the eternal begins to overtake the reality of the temporal
