Mary Sings


A repost of a poem I wrote a few years back. This simple verse is my attempt at capturing the power and the simplicity of the moment right after Mary’s hears the Good News. Blessings, Jay

mary Mary Sings

Angel words stir
a devoted heart

Accepting the revelation

Rejoicing with Heaven

A song magnifies
a kingdom’s glory

A young woman
becomes a young mother

The embodiment of
the Father’s intent

Born to her
Sent for us

Emmanuel has come

In her heart
Mary sings

Beautiful poem, Jay. She said "yes" to God and her Emmanuel became ours. Amazing.

I've been thinking alot about Mary lately...she was amazing! I couldn't have been her.

What a great example she was...thanks Jason!

More than amazing. I can't wrap my head around her selflessness. I just don't think I could have let my baby (even if he was a grown man) go through that. I can't imagine her pain or her relationship with God. She had such's inspiring. She's my hero.

She was brave, unselfish and had a heart like no other...I am in awe of her devotion.
