Be It Unto Me

I want to share a photo that I took while 
browsing around our little town.

Peace on earth, peace in my heart. 
Peace, a simple word that stills the storm to a whisper.

Yesterday, The Pastor's sermon and the song, Be It Unto Me, 
were just absolutely a God-send. 

Every year the Lord whispers a word or two into my spirit ear 
and if I'm still enough, I will hear. 

A few years ago at one of the darkest times of my life, 
after my parents death, He whispered to me, 

He was speaking, "I am with you.  You are not alone."

One year it was "Peace," everywhere I turned
during a time of great chaos and confusion.

Last year it was "Joy."

Truly those were seasons, of Emanuel, God with Us, 
His Peace and then a season of Joy.

When I pulled everything out for the holidays, 
I didn't have much. 
I had given most to Goodwill when we moved and I was kinda sad. 

This Christmas has not been easy financially. 
There are decisions still to be made.
I am working and not able to spend as much time with grands.
Things have not turned out exactly as we had planned. 
We will get through Christmas with only this in mind, 
"My soul doth magnify the Lord."

That's what I wrote on my little chalk board before I decorated a thing, 
before we even thought about other possibilities. 

These words were the words of Mary when Jesus was born. 
As she held her baby boy who would one day walk on water, 
she said the words of praise and wonder, 
"My Soul Doth Magnify the Lord."

Afraid at what lay ahead, 
she was able to say, 
"My Soul Doth Magnify the Lord."

Yesterday, Be It Unto Me
(listen if you like)
was sung by our choir. 
When told that Mary would have a child, 
conceived of the Holy Spirit she said, 
"Be it unto me."

As I face days of uncertainly, 
I can truly say,
"thy will be done.  Be it unto me."

This was taken last year at our Christmas Eve service.

  4. Bonnie, You know things have a way of working out when you have faith. Maybe some gently used toys from Goodwill cleaned up, Home made things and baked goodies make great gifts. Hold tight to your faith. God is with you. Blessings, xoxo, Susie

  5. Awe,,,enjoyed this today Bonnie. And it is indeed well with my soul. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  6. Bonnie, this post was very nice as it talks about our Mother Mary. 'Peace on Earth' is a beautiful saying, and it would be nice if we all thought that; wouldn't the world be a better place? I love the picture of the little one holding the candle.
