To my dear friends, who have stuck with me throughout this journey:

It’s Christmas… the season of love, joy, reflection and Christmas music!  I really love music that affects me and makes me feel a strong connection to the words.  Two songs that do this are “Mary Did You Know” for Christmas and another favorite, “He’s Alive” at Easter.

Have you ever sat down, closed your eyes and let the words of either of these songs just permeate your heart?  Mary, just a young girl, knew her baby boy was very special, but could she possibly have really understood that her baby was sent to save the world?  She knew she was chosen by God to give birth to this very special baby, but could she possibly have understood the magnitude of what was to come?  And the pain that would come with it?

As I read these lyrics, I am nearly overwhelmed.  What if, when you kissed your baby, you knew you kissed the face of God? That after giving so much in His short time, He would make the ultimate sacrifice?

He’s Alive” is really the natural progression from “Mary Did You Know”.   The Son of God was born, He died and He arose again.  It was the culmination of God’s plan.  And Mary saw it all. As the nails were pounded into His hands and feet, there is no doubt in my mind that she felt every blow.

If you have a few minutes, just sit down, close your eyes and listen to the words.  If you can’t listen, take a deep breath and read these lyrics and really let them sink in.  Imagine the magnitude of what took place and then put that together with the true celebration of Christmas.

Merry Christmas, God Bless you and Pray Unceasingly!

In His light,

Lois

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

Mary did you know, Mary did you know, Mary did you know

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

Mary did you know, Mary did you know, Mary did you know
