Last night I had the opportunity to go to a
Gaither Christmas concert with my husband.
There was a variety of different types of music;
and one can never go wrong with Christmas music,
no matter the genre!
Well, I take that back.
I looked on YouTube for Hillbilly Christmas Music.
I guess I should say one can't go wrong with
Seasonal music...well...some of it is just wrong!!
I got to hear the writer of the following song
sing this live last night.
The song has been around for a while,
but it is still one of the top Christmas songs sung!
Here is one of the better versions I found.
By the way...it's Mark Lowry,
not Mark Lowery like the YouTube person wrote.
As you enjoy it...
you won't be able to forget what this season
is all about...and where it got it's start!
Please read my ponders below the song
after you finish watching:
In close, as I sit here cuddling my son,
I wonder...what will he become someday?
We named him after Stephen in the Bible.
Do you know who Stephen is?
I pray that my son is as strong and brave
and takes a stand...just like Stephen.
Then there's Seth.
Right now he loves to learn;
whether it be about Creation, or the Creator.
What will he be?
Am I helping him find the right path?
We just never know what our little boys
are going to do when they grow up.
How thankful I am that I wasn't chosen to be Mary.
I couldn't watch my son be tortured and crucified,
when I knew him to be the most loving,
most compassionate person on earth. Ever.
It would have killed me to watch as Mary had to do.
Guess that's why I wasn't chosen...and she was.
She was only human,
but what a strong lady she must have been!
