Merry Christmas!!! I know I’m late to the game but I just started hearing about Penatonix recently. They are an incredibly talented a cappella group from Texas. I wanted to share with you their version of “Mary Did You Know.”
This song has always been a favorite of mine, but now that I’m a momma, it takes on a whole new meaning. Do you think Mary knew how her son would die? Do you think that she could endure that reality while being pregnant and raising him? She was already courageous; risking shame and humiliation by accepting God’s son into her womb while not being married, but to know that she might have to withstand that AND watch this baby endure his own humiliation and then crucifixion…I don’t know. I never appreciated the gift of God’s son, Jesus, the way I do now that I’m a mother. I would never be able to give life to a child with the full knowledge that his only purpose was to die…to save us, all of us no matter how undeserving we are. I pray, on this day that we celebrate the Savior, that you have accepted this outrageous gift.
The Penatonix version of this song gave me chills and brought tears to my eyes. Have a wonderful Christmas day and remember the real reason we celebrate.
