"Mary, did you know that your baby boy
Would one day walk on water?"*
Why, yes. She knew.
She knew he would. Of course she knew. She knew because she was a mama.
And just as a mama knows how to rock a baby to sleep
and how to take a child's temperature by kissing his forehead
and how to fold fitted sheets
and how to make gravy,
a mama knows that her baby is special. Her baby is the greatest gift God has ever given.
A mama knows. She just knows.
What was different about Mary was that her baby boy was, in fact, the greatest gift God has ever given. Not just to her, but to the whole world.
And though the story of Mary and her baby has been told and re-told for 2000 years, it hasn't grown old.
That's because Mary's baby was the Way, the Truth, and the Life.
May you be blessed with the light of His precious love this Christmas.
