A Christmas for Grandpa Ward

After one of our family Christmas Parties, we went to Grandpa Thern's Grave Side. Base had put up a few Christmas trees there. The younger kids had decorated some handmade ornaments for his tree, so they all went to put them on his tree. To me, Christmas is about family coming together to celebrate Christ's birth and all that he continued to do for us through out his life. There was such a great purpose to why He came to earth. I know that the Ward family loves Christmas a lot-it's very special to all of them. Having each member there together is also VERY important to them. The song, "Mary, Did You Know?" is one of my favorite Christmas songs. I love how it reminds us of all the good He did for us. So this is a song I dedicate to Grandpa Thern. We sure miss you-esp at Christmas!

Mary, did you know
That your baby boy will one day walk on water?
Mary, did you know
That your baby boy will save our sons and daughters?
Did you know
That your baby boy has come to make you new?
This child that you've delivered
Will soon deliver you

Mary, did you know
That your baby boy will give sight to a blind man?
Mary, did you know
That your baby boy will calm a storm with His hand?
Did you know
That your baby boy has walked where angels trod?
And when you kiss your little baby
You've kissed the face of God

Mary, did you know?
The blind will see
The deaf will hear
And the dead will live again
The lame will leap
The dumb will speak
The praises of the Lamb

Mary, did you know
That your baby boy is Lord of all creation?
Mary, did you know
That your baby boy will one day rule the nations?
Did you know
That your baby boy is heaven's perfect Lamb?
This sleeping child you're holding
Is the Great I Am


Oh Mary did you know?
