Sharing from this morning's email from:
Here's the Story of the Day
on Hollywood Boulevard
I saw a young girl with a baby.
It was a crisp winter morning
& her hair shone
dark purple in the sun.
She was panhandling
outside the Holiday Inn
& the door clerk came out
& told her to be on her way & I
wondered if anyone would
recognize the Christ child
if they happened to meet.
I remember thinking
it's not like there are any
& purple seemed
like a good color for a Madonna
so I gave her a dollar
just in case.
Mary Did You Know?
(sung by Mark Lowry who wrote the lyric
& gave it to Buddy Greene who wrote the music)
My favorite (new) Christmas Song
you'll get options to hear the song sung by others ...
My second favorite is Mark & Buddy singing together.

"I have always thought of Christmas time, when it has come round, as a good time; a kind, forgiving, charitable time; the only time I know of, in the long calendar of the year, when men and women seem by one consent to open their shut-up hearts freely, and to think of people below them as if they really were fellow passengers to the grave, and not another race of creatures bound on other journeys." Charles Dickens
