“But Mary kept all these things and pondered them in her heart” (Luke 2:19)
As the shepherds came to see the newborn babe, it is said that “Mary kept all these things and pondered them in her heart.” Much had taken place in this young woman’s life.  Miracles abounded as angels and stars, mystery and wonder surrounded this wonderful event in her life. What “things” do you think Mary “kept” and “pondered in her heart?” The beautiful wording of the Christmas song causes us to wonder…
 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 daughter?
    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?

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’ve kissed the face of God?

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?

This song is not centuries old, as so many of our Christmas carols are.  It was written by Mark Lowry and Buddy Greene, and recorded by Michael English in 1991. Since that time it has become a Christmas classic.  As I listened this past weekend to the wonderful words, I was moved. Every time I hear it, I feel great awe and wonder, and gratefulness in my heart.

Let us remember, that Christmas is no small matter. It’s about the most special baby ever born.  It’s about the birth of a child, the gift of God’s Son, who came to save us.  When you hear this Christmas song, may its words cause you stand in awe of the Christmas miracle, the birth of our Lord, the incarnation of God in human form–the One who was born to die so that man might live!
