2012 Christmas Music Marathon Day 15

Earlier in the 2012 Christmas Music Marathon we asked the question "Mary, Did You Know?"  We can only wonder if Mary comprehended what was happening to her as a result of her obedience to God.  She and Joseph surely endured a great deal of criticism for their situation.  In fact those close to Joseph counseled him to walk away from her.  In their minds she had obviously been unfaithful.  But through their relationship with God, Joseph and Mary remained faithful to the Creator and to each other.  Joseph knew the child that Mary was carrying wasn't his child, and I think they both knew it was God's child.  All of us are God's creation and deserve a right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.  At some point in our lives we can decide if we simply want to be one of God's creations, or one of God's children.  There is a difference.

No, this child wasn't Joseph's child, it was God's child. Jesus, what a wonderful child. Have a blessed week-end.


  1. I want to be one of God's children. Just saying. I really like Yearwood. Very much. I've not heard the second one is excellent as well. You are really mixing them up this year. I likey.

    Have a terrific day. :)

  2. Beautiful Sky, Is this a "buttermilk" sky?

  3. To me, this is one of Winter's quintessential skies, with those curdled clouds and muted colors, and a sun that although it looks like molten gold, provides little or no warmth. I love winter, so I love a sky like this. Really lovely! (As was your comment on my blog today, thank you!) :-)

  4. Beautiful skies and a lovely capture! I love Trisha Yearwood!
