beautiful words

I am enjoying some new (for me) Christmas music this year. This song especially is beautiful and the words powerful. An excerpt:

....." By holy intervention
An act of love divine
In union with mortality
Make incarnation mine."

Beautiful.... the Holy One, taking on flesh, walking our roads,eating our foods, getting dusty with our dirt
all to save us.

I keep thinking of Mary and her amazing role in this. She began His life by delivering him. He ended His by delivering her. I wonder if He has a special place in heaven for her; his mother/daughter?

I hope to write more later....

  1. Gorgeous! Mary is such an inspiration. We heard a sermon the other day in which the pastor mentioned the thought that Joseph might have taken Mary along with him to Bethlehem (Usually it was the heads of the household only who traveled to pay the taxes) so that she would be under his protection... instead of left on her own at home. (!) I had never thought of it that way before.
