BLESSED AM I

Many years ago, shortly after I had my last child, a baby boy, (who was born on Dec. 13th), I was blessed with the privilege of playing the part of Mary in a stake Christmas production, while my husband played the part of Joseph.  As I rocked my baby Jesus, (a doll wrapped in swathing bands), and sang to him a lullabye, as if I were Mary, the mother of Jesus, I experienced an outpouring of the Lord’s sweet spirit; and perhaps in a small sense, was given to know and feel Mary’s emotions and love for her own tiny child.  A reverent hush came over the audience, and time seemed momentarily to stand still. ~ Blessed Am I captures these feelings. I have added a new link for the background accompaniment,  one step lower, (in the key of C).  Here it is, as my Christmas gift to you.
