Icon of Mary

I ordered an icon to be my advent icon (I have 5 or 6 I rotate with the seasons on the wall next to my bed). It is an icon of Mary called "More Spacious than the Heavens". The Creator of heaven and earth was contained in Mary's womb so her womb must be more spacious than the heavens. My daughter was born at 10 pounds 1 ounce so I'm not sure I find that entirely a comfortable image. But it does expand my image of God inside me.
