MARY, DID YOU KNOW?” Christmas beauty based on old, old truth. Mary and Joseph – earthly care takers of our precious Christ-child. Doesn’t it penetrate your heart as you identify with their roles? Entrusted with the Baby, the Child; heart broken as His mission unfolds.

“Mary, did you run after him and beg for a few more years at home? I’m sure I would have tried to negotiate “I’m going to make your favorite bread loaf in the morning, the kind with the chopped nuts.” and “Next week, I will be inviting your uncle Joe and his family for a party so you can welcome your cousins’ new friends.”

No, I guess she did not do that. She remembered the words of Simeon, “and a sword will pierce your soul, too.” And as she accepted the blessings and pain of his birth, she accepted the blessings and pain of his leaving.

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. Ooo Ooo Ooo

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.

About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...

  1. Oneta, this song is one of my favorites. (I like to sing it with my Celtic harp.😏) Pondering what it might have been like for Mary down through the years … Quite a journey. Thanks for taking us along.

    One of my very favorite hymns for Christmas. I wonder what were in Mary’s thoughts about the miraculous events that were taking place.
