Mary

As I stare at my baby belly
I think about her.
The woman who carried Jesus
On that night, so long ago.

I’m curious of her demeanor.
I ponder her pain.
I am visioning a woman
With very little to gain

Did she know the huge impact
Her son would soon bring
On a world centuries away
How we’d celebrate this day?

Could she know we’d sing carol’s
Or decorate a tree
How we’d sing happy Birthday
To her son, the True King?

So on this Christmas Eve
I thank God for sending
His son, the Christ Jesus
So I could come to be…

Staring at my baby belly
Thinking about her.
The woman who carried Jesus
On that night, so long ago.

But again...to think that your son will change the world. Wow
