Baby footI can’t believe how many times I’ve heard messages this season on the idea of Mary’s pondering.

For many years (before I studied the Bible for myself) I thought Mary was pondering the visit and the gifts of the Magi. Then I discovered the Wise Men didn’t even visit the manger!

Now that I’m a mother and grandmother, I personally know about pondering as I held those precious babies in my arms. What would they look like? What would they become? Of course, Mary had a little more insight than we do as new mothers and grandmothers. After all, an angel came to her and told her she would be the mother of the Christ-child.

But as she pondered that dark and chilly night, did she really understand that her baby would change the world? Did she understand that 2000 years later, we’d still be celebrating His birth?

But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart.  Luke 2:19

Here’s a video of a precious little girl singing Happy Birthday, Jesus. I hope you’ll watch. You won’t be disappointed! It’s simply a home-type video without professional technology, but oh my goodness, what a touching performance about our precious Savior, sung by a precious little girl.

Happy birthday, Jesus…
