Breath Of Heaven (Mary's Song) - Amy Grant

Sam is doing ok today. He is tired, but understandably so. The coughing/wheezing that has occured over the last few days seems to be improving. He seemed to have a little bit of blood in his stool today, but I am praying that this is not anything and that tomorrow will be a good day for him. I am starting to get a little anxious about his surgery, knowing that it is two weeks from today. Praying that the ICU isn't too scary for him at Children's. Praying that his pain will be well controlled, praying that there will be no hemorraging, and praying for God's will throughout this whole experience, and that I can shine God's light. Going through this Christmas season and the fears and health problems that have been going on with Sam, has really got me thinking about long ago.....
I have been thinking a lot in the last week or so about Mary and Joseph and the thoughts that must have gone through their minds as they learned that they were expecting a child, but not only a child, but the Son of God! As a first time mom there were so many things that I was worried about messing up. And now as I have two children, I look at each of them so often and ask myself if I am doing right by them, if I am teaching them as God would want me to. God bless Mary for her righteous heart, for carrying our Saviour, for obeying God's plan for her life.
Below a song that has spoken to me often through the years. It brings it back home that Mary was a mom just like me, yet she was chosen to carry my Saviour! Enjoy!!!

I have traveled many moonless nights
Cold and weary with a babe inside
And I wonder what I've done
Holy Father you have come
And chosen me now
To carry your son

I am waiting in a silent prayer
I am frightened by the load I bear
In a world as cold as stone
Must I walk this path alone
Be with me now
Be with me now

Breath of heaven
Hold me together
Be forever near me
Breath of heaven
Breath of heaven
Lighten my darkness
Pour over me your holiness
For you are holy
Breath of heaven

Do you wonder as you watch my face
If a wiser one should have had my place
But I offer all I am
For the mercy of your plan
Help me be strong
Help me be
Help me
