To think that God started the whole thing. Until I was a young woman, did I think about Mary being seen by her friends and family as a girl who may have done something wrong. She had to have been looked on as a "bad" girl. I mean, she was young, pregnant, and looked on as unfaithful to her fiancee'. But God, used this situation to show us that sometimes it is not what we see. We have to wait and let everything unfold before we can understand everything. Judgement is not something we should be proud of and each of us is guilty of judging someone before we know everything. But with Mary, it was something she gracefully went through and didn't say a word. In fact, I think as Jesus grew, she began to see and understand who he was and what he was going to do, to an extent. So I leave you with one of the most popular song of our day.
Mary, Did You Know?
Written by Mark Lowry and Buddy Greene
Mary did you know that your baby boy would one day walk on water?
Mary did you know that your baby boy would 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 would give sight to a blind man?
Mary did you know that your baby boy will 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?
The blind will see, the deaf will hear, the dead will live again.
The lame will leap, the dumb will speak the praises of the lamb.
Mary did you know that your baby boy is Lord of all creation?
Mary did you know that your baby boy would one day rules the nations?
Did you know that your baby boy is heaven's perfect Lamb?
This sleeping child you're holding, is the great I AM.
