Mary did you know???

Mary did you know that your baby boy will one day walk on water?
Mary did you know that your baby boy will save our sons and daughters?
Did you know that your baby boy has come to make you new?
This child that you've delivered, will soon deliver you.

Mary did you know that your baby boy will give sight to a blind man?
Mary did you know that your baby boy will calm a storm with his hand?
Did you know that your baby boy has walked where angels trod?
And when you kiss your little baby, you have kissed the face of God.

The blind will see, the deaf will hear and the dead will live again.
The lame will leap, the dumb will speak, the praises of the lamb.

Mary did you know that your baby boy is Lord of all creation?
Mary did you know that your baby boy will one day rule the nations?
Did you know that your baby boy is heaven's perfect Lamb?
This sleeping child you're holding is the great I am.

Pondering what Mary must have thought.......gee, what a
pregnancy. Those of us that have been pregnant have had
those long months to "consider" how pregnancy would change
our lives. We pondered logistics, worries, concerns, details,
nurseries, etc. But what if we had been
told such weighty matters as she was told?
What must she have thought and feared?
What must she have treasured???

I've been busy this last week, and the house
has been chaotic...not much time to ponder....
and when I have, it's been about meals,
shopping, wrapping, who's going where when...
..I find myself a little short on
the time I've pondered. Let's take some time
to ponder this season. The gift,
not the ones under the tree,
but the one GIVEN by the Heavenly Father,
who knew full well that SON He gave would also
be the one He would sacrifice
on our behalf.
But what HE gave THAT needs some pondering.
Enjoy the time
to ponder what this means for you
and yours. Merry Christmas!

Katie sang this as a solo one Christmas Eve. It's one of my favorite songs. I do miss that girl and wish we could see them this week, but your post has brought back some very happy memories.

Thanks for the reminder, like you I have been so busy this week, but it is important to stop and remember what it is really about.
Love that song, and there are a few words I had not picked up before just listening to it.
Wishing you a Blessed Christmas.

Suzanne, have you heard Mark Lowry's story of how this song came about? Very interesting. It's one of my favorites, too. Deep things to ponder...
