Emmanuel


Mary, did you know

that your Baby Boy would one day walk on water?

Mary, did you know

that your Baby Boy would save our sons and daughters?

Did you know

that your Baby Boy has come to make you new?

This Child that you 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 the storm with His hand?

Did you know

that your Baby Boy has walked where angels trod?

When you kiss your little Baby you kissed the face of God?



Mary did you know…



The blind will see.

The deaf will hear.

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 would one day rule the nations?

Did you know

that your Baby Boy is heaven's perfect Lamb?

The sleeping Child you're holding is the Great, I Am.

"Mary Did You Know?" - Mark Lowry

The last line of this song always gives me chills—what would it feel like to hold the Great, I Am? How incredible would it be to cradle the baby that would one day give His precious life to grant me the choice of a perfect and beautiful eternity with Him!? I imagine Mary must have felt some kind of electricity shoot through her when she looked at her Baby Boy. I think looking into the eyes of Jesus, heaven’s perfect Lamb, would emit unbelievably strong emotions.

To stare into the innocent eyes of a child in and of itself is one of the sweetest things left on earth—but imagine those precious eyes being the same ones that would hold the tears of painful torture born for you. Imagine those tiny hands being the same ones that would one day be pierced by nails, spilling His blood and making us pure and white as snow. Imagine those lips speaking words of wisdom to thousands of people who would gather to listen. Mary knew…she held her Savior.

Merry Christmas to all of you! I pray that we may all take the time to ponder the beauty of our selfless Savior this Christmas. Remember, today is not only the celebration of His birth, but also of our new life in Christ! Hoping that you all will spend some wonderful time with the people you love most in celebration of the greatest Gift ever to be given—an opportunity for a pure and hopeful life with Jesus!

Hi Abigail,

During the whole Christmas season, I was busy working. I only took time off for two days to be with my family and I must say, I haven't even been to church at all. I feel kind of guilty for not even praying.

I came across your post and after reading it, I had to say a quick--but very heartfelt prayer-- to Jesus.

Thanks for posting.

Good Sweet Abigail!

#1 LOVE your blog makeover. You are so talented. Did you use Photoshop 6E?

I have listened to that song maybe a 100 times this month. Each time the words drive deeper into my heart. I think the same thing Abigail - especially being a Mom to so many. Imagine looking into your newborn childs eyes knowing these are the eyes of GOD! WOW! and then WOE!

I love you - praying you had a blessed holiday with your family!

Enjoy your time together!
