Day 309, December 18

Many of my favorite Christmas carols center around Mary, the mother of Jesus.  A Primary song, "Mary's Lullaby," tells the story of Mary's love for her baby:

 Lullayby, lullaby, my little one, lullaby, my child so dear.  
Thy precious life has just begun; thy mother holds thee near. 
While Joseph watches through the night,
A star reflects thy radiant light.

Thy gentle head shall wear a crown, for thy Father is the King.
Thy tender hands so little now, have blessings great to bring.
Let all creation join my song
For peace and love this night are born.


Lullaby, lullaby, my little one.
Lullaby, my child so dear

So, for today, I am grateful for Mary, mother of the Savior.
