Many Thanks & A Song. . .

I want to say a big thank you to two blogging friends today.

First, I want to thank Becky at for picking me as the winner for her contest she held on Wednesday. Thanks so much Becky!! It was fun!! Be sure to check out her blog to find out what the contest was all about & the special prize she's sending me. I'm so excited!!!!

The other day I was given the award shown below by Gloria at Her blog shows so many beautiful things in her home. Thanks Gloria for the award & always stopping by here to leave a sweet comment!!

This song blesses me. . .

I remember the first time I heard the song, 'Mary, Did You Know?', by Mark Lowry. As I listened to his gorgeous voice & heard the powerful lyrics, tears filled my eyes. The song has been a blessing to me, I hope it touches you too.

I wasn't able to find Mark singing the song on PlayList so I'm featuring Clay Aiken.

Mary, Did You Know?

By : Mark Lowry

Mary did you know that your baby boy will one day walk on water?
Mary did you know that your baby boy will save our sons and daughters?
Did you know that your baby boy has come to make you new?
This child that you've delivered, will soon deliver you.
Mary did you know that your baby boy will 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 have kissed the face of God.
The blind will see, the deaf will hear and 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 will one day rule 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.
