MARY, DID YOU KNOW?
For any of you that use social media, you have undoubtedly heard this year’s seasonal hit song from Pentatonix entitled, Mary, Did You Know?
“Did you know that your baby boy would one day walk on water? Save our sons and Daughters? Give sight to the blind and calm the storm with his hand? Did you know that your Baby boy is the Lord of all Creation and one day rule the nations? That he is heaven’s perfect Lamb and the Great I am?”
. . . well. . . yes. . . . and no. After all what does a mother really know – what do any of us really know about our children at that age? And even more, do we really want to know?
What did Mary KNOW? It is hard to say. . . but we don’t celebrate Mary because of what she knew – we celebrate her because of what and who she believed.
