Mary's Song

I posted a a piece of a song the other day " Breath of Heaven."  It is one of my most favorite Christmas songs.  I know it isn't one of the traditional Christmas hymns, but it is still one of my favorites.  It's just on my mind alot lately and really just speaks to me.  It's called Mary's song.  I was riding in the car the other day when it came on as I was stuck between my Christmas blues mood and my Christmas to do's when I just felt this lump in my throat.  It was kind of one of those moments when the fog is lifted and you are able to see with eternal eyes.  The reality of Christmas hit me right there in my lonely car.  The reality of a God baby, a teenage mother, and the fact the He was quietly born into the world that night to die so that I could have life.  Not just eternal life, but life today.  Life with my kids, my husband, my family.  As I listened I felt like she was singing this song to me.  Mary had just given birth to a son that she knew she would have to watch die a horrible death.  God had chosen her.  I am sure she was weighing the magnitude of her circumstance, and the responsibility God himself had given her. As a mom myself, who has cradled a dying son in her arms, I feel a wave of emotion rush over me as I think about her thoughts that night.  

I have traveled

Many moonless night
Cold and Weary
With a babe inside
And I wonder
What I've done
Holy Father
You have come
Chosen me now
To carry your son

I am waiting
in a silent prayer
I am frightened
by the load i bear
In a world as cold as stone
Must I walk this path alone
Be with me now
Be with me now

Breath of Heaven
Hold me together
Be forever near me
Breath of Heaven

Breath of Heaven
Lighten my darkness
Pour over me, your holyness
For your holy Breath of Heaven
Do you wonder
As you watch my face
If a wiser one, should of had my place
But I offer-all I am
For the mercy-of your plan
Help me be strong
Help me be
Help me

Sometimes in the darkness of my own soul He shines a light so bright, so everlasting.  He is born in me so that His peace and joy are always there amidst the hurt.  In the book of Luke it mentions that Mary "pondered all these things in her heart."  For me thats all I need this Christmas is just to simply ponder these things in my heart! 
I hope you all have a very Merry CHRISTmas!
