Amy Grant - Advent Calendar Day 4

Today's post is for Kerry.

I always thought Mary must have been a very special young woman to be chosen as the mother of the Savior. But when I first heard "Breath of Heaven" sung at our community Christmas concert a few years ago, I was struck with the thought that Mary was very young and was dealing with a huge responsibility. She must have been overwhelmed at times. But she could call on God for help. Sometimes, my prayers echo the line from the song, "Help me be strong. Help me be. Help me." And God makes me just a little stronger.

Here's another song by Amy Grant called "Heirlooms."

Thanks for visiting. Come back and see what's here tomorrow!


  1. Oh, Marta! It's all so beautiful! (I've been here about an hour now, I think!) Thank you, thank you, thank you! This is absolutely the best Christmas gift anybody's ever given me!

  2. I'm so glad you like it! I've had so much fun discovering all these wonderful music videos. I'm going to have to have my teenagers teach me how to do slide shows like these and then do a personalized version of "Heirlooms" for our next family reunion.
