Pieces of Christmas #9: Mary, Did You Know?

It must have been very unusual for the young girl that was the mother of Jesus.  On the one hand, this was a baby like any other baby.  On the other, there has never been another baby anything like Him.

Everything about her pregnancy, from the angelic announcement to the immaculate conception, was unusual.  The timing of the birth was inconvenient. The angelic proclamation to the lowly shepherds was unheard of. This birth was different.  This Child was different.

This is the Savior! He is the Messiah.  He is the Christ--the Christ of Christmas!

Lovely version. I have another one that I bought 11 years ago, with only one voice, and the artist's name escapes me just now. It's a neat thing that Kenny and Wynonna teamed up on this version you've shared. I think it's more like how the actual news was spread once the story was known...one person very excitedly telling it to another.
