Christmas Joys – Mary, Did You Know?

by | Dec 2, 2019 | | Christmas Traditions & Thoughts | 6 comments

Can you believe it’s the beginning of December? Where have the past 11 months gone? Wow….we’re coming into my favourite time of the year already!

I love Christmas. However, what I don’t like is the busyness of the season. Unfortunately, it can bring out the ugliness in us. You know the story. We’re rushing to get things done, trying to find the most sought-after toy your child wants, fitting in all those parties, baking…the list goes on. We forget to stop and remember WHY we celebrate—

The most blessed Gift of all was given to us.

Let’s be still and celebrate our Saviour this Christmas season.

I thought I’d start the month of December with one of my favorite Christmas songs. Mary, Did You Know? Many artists have recorded this song written by Mark Lowry and Buddy Greene. The lyrics are powerful.


Ladies, put yourself in Mary’s shoes. Can you imagine having the Saviour of the world growing inside you? WOW! And that He would someday walk on water, perform miracle after miracle, and then die a horrific death.

I’m not sure we can imagine that.

This song brings tears to my eyes. I’ve chosen a version by a group called Pentatonix. This is amazing. It will give you chills!

What is your favourite Christmas song? Tell us what it is and why.

    I love December too. I always look forward to Christmas too. I just wish it wasnt so commercial I just love getting together with friends. I dont look forward to snow. I always worry about our family and friends who travel around this time of year. We are invited for Christmas dinner at my youngest daughter’s home. There will be 9 of us so that will be great, Her 2 daughters and spouses will be home. One daughter is now a Doctor at our local hospital and one daughter is a RN in Dartmouth about 40 minutes away. I am so proud of them, I feel I am blessed with such brilliant ladies. I will try to make time to read some in between decorating and sending some cards. Must go now, have a great day. Love to you and hubby.

    I love that song, Mary Did You Know. Beautiful. May we all remember the reason for Christmas and not get caught up in the negatives of the season. In fact, be a blessing to someone you don’t know during the holidays. You might be the answer to their prayers. Thank you, Darlene.

    Right now my favorite Christmas song is by Casting Crowns featuring Matt Maher. “Make Room”. A beautiful song. I pray we all will make room in our hearts for God.
