MARY DID YOU KNOW?

Today is Then Sings My Soul Saturday and I decided to share another one of my favorite Christmas songs.  It just kind of sums it all up for us.  Today Jeff and I are traveling down to San Diego to celebrate the birth of our precious little granddaughter Capri Angelina.  She will be 5 years old on Mon.  She might be the sweetest little thing I have ever come across, but then Grandma can't be very obvjective, haha  She lives in a world of make believe and dress up, and her imagination carries her to places that keep not only her entertained, but those around her.  She finds whatever she can around the house for her various games and weaves her elaborate vision of reality.  I took this picture off of her mother's blog page as I just had to share it with all of you.  She is playing "Mary" here.  Her mother's dish towel is on her head to create her "look" and she is using her little sisters dollie for Jesus.  An empty box of wippies is the manager.  I LOVE it...Her parents have been talking to all of them about the birth of Jesus and what Christmas is all about, and as always Capri has put herself in the role of that wonderful woman who was blessed to be the mother of Jesus, the Savior of the world.   In my opinion it just doesn't get much better than this...



“Mary, Did You Know”



Mary, did you know
That your baby boy will one day walk on water?
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?
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 boy
You've kissed the face of God


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?
Did you know
That your baby boy will one day rules 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

Hope you all have a wonderful day.  To find the others whose hearts are singing today, join Amy and click HERE.

  2. I so love that beautiful song, Debbie! Thanks for writing out the lyrics for us...it has a message that I wonder if many of us thought about until Mark wrote it. Mary did ponder her Son...imagine, just imagine. I think it was Debbie at Heart Choices that had the post about Jesus being born a baby, yet at the same time, being born fully God. How blessed we are!

    Enjoy that beautiful granddaughter this week-end! The Lord has worked this all out for you...He is SO GOOD!

    Hugs and love,
    Mary

  7. What a precious little "Mary" your Capri makes. It's so cute to see the imagination at work as children play act what they learn. She's learning good things, that's for sure.

    I hope you have a wonderful celebration in San Diego. Greg and I have vacationed in SD many times and love the area.

    Blessings,

    Debbie
