"Mary, Did You Know?" ~ the Story and the Song

This song was sang at church during the Christmas play last week (the 13th). And it really got me to thinking. Did Mary know? I mean, she knew who He was, but how much of what He would go on to do did she know?  Seeing as how this song was written by my favorite comedian, I decided to share the story behind it. :) 

//The Song// Mary, did you know, that your Baby Boy
Will one day walk on water? Mary, did you know, that your Baby Boy
Will 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
Would calm a storm with his hand?

Did you know, that your Baby Boy
Has walked where angels trod  And when you kiss your little Baby, 
You've kissed the face of God? 
Oh, Mary, did you know?  Mary, did you know? 
The blind will see, the deaf will hear,
The dead will live again The lame will leap, the dumb will speak,

"It's a Wonderful Life"

It's a Wonderful Life *sigh* Just that title is perfectly Christmas, don't ya think? I hadn't seen this movie until...Christmas before last? Anyway, it's quickly became my favorite Christmas movie. :) Instead of including it in the post of Christmas movies I did Sunday, I decide to do I separate post just for this. :) Here goes! 
(We watched this movie last Saturday night and I made two whole lists of be prepared for this to get lengthy... B-))

Violet: "I like him."  Mary: "You like every boy."  Violet: "What's wrong with that?" (Tucker says "what is wrong with that? Especially if I'm one of the boys." LOL.) 
Aw....<3 <3

"Beautiful Star of Bethlehem" ~ the Story and the Song

If you do not read my other blog, click HERE see what this is all about. :) 
It has came to my attention that many of my blogger friends are not familiar with one of my favorite Christmas songs, "Beautiful Star of Bethlehem". If you are one of them, this is for you. ;)  When looking up the lyrics to this song online, I realized that they're not exactly the same as we sing at church. So below is the words to this song from our church hymnal. ;-) 
"Beautiful Star Of Bethlehem"
Verse one: Oh beautiful star of Bethlehem Shining afar through shadows dim Giving a light for those who long have gone (have gone)  And guiding the wise men on their way Unto the place where Jesus lay Beautiful star of Bethlehem shine on (shine on) 
Chorus:  **Oh beautiful star (beautiful, beautiful star) of Bethlehem (star of Bethlehem) Shine upon us until the glory dawn (glory dawn)  Oh Give us thy light to light the way Into the land of perfect day Beautiful star of Bethlehem shine on (shine on)
