** Due to the increasing severity of MY ILLNESS, it has become impossible for me to continue to post on a regular basis. Unfortunately, as much as I desperately long to, I am also unable to visit each of your blogs often or reciprocate all the loving, supportive comments many of you continue to leave - even though at times it may appear as though you've arrived at some long ago, forsaken blog! With that said, I really want you to know that I miss every single one of you and that I really am still here! I'm just too sick and too weak most days to be able to sit up long enough to create a brand new post...or even read one. However, I absolutely do receive AND read every new encouraging word you leave (and, often, the old ones, again and again!) and I cherish them now more than ever! I truly appreciate your love, support, and, most importantly, your precious time spent on your knees in prayer for my family and me. It ALL means the world to me and I am truly blessed to have friends like you!

THEN SINGS MY SOUL SATURDAYS
Breath of Heaven

I've always loved this amazing song by Amy Grant. It is written from Mary's perspective and really gives us a true idea of how she must have felt as she prepared to give birth to her son.....to our Lord and Savior. The Son of God!

BREATH OF HEAVEN

I have traveled many moonless nights
Cold and weary, with a babe inside
And I wonder what I've done
Holy Father you have come
And chosen me now, to carry your son.


I am waiting, in a silent prayer
I am frightened, by the load I bear
In a world as cold as stone
Must I walk this path alone?
Be with me now, be with me now.


Breath of Heaven, hold me together
Be forever near me, breath of Heaven
Breath of Heaven, lighten my darkness
Pour over me your holiness, for you are holy,
Breath of Heaven.


Do you wonder when you watch my face,
If a wiser one should have had my place?
But I offer all I am for the mercy of your plan
Help me be strong, help me be strong,
Help me be strong, help me.


Breath of Heaven, hold me together
Be forever near me, breath of Heaven
Breath of Heaven, lighten my darkness
Pour over me your holiness, for you are holy.


Breath of Heaven, hold me together
Be forever near me, breath of Heaven
Breath of Heaven, lighten my darkness
Pour over me your holiness, for you are holy.


Breath of Heaven,
Breath of Heaven,
Breath of Heaven,
Breath of Heaven...

Wow, you've been through a lot and have emerged with a great attitude. As a person without a religious upbringing, I wonder if I'd come to believe if faced with a crisis. (I know you believed before your illness; I don't mean to suggest otherwise.) I know religion provides more than a comfort in rough times and I do wish I had that sense of tradition and safety for my daughter, but it's hard to consider if you don't believe. Hmm. Over from SITS and hoping you don't mind my pondering. I intended a fast "hi", but you made me think. Thank you.

I love this song! It is one of my favorite Amy Grant songs! Isn't she awesome? When I was pregnant with my first daughter I BLARED her music in my car! My Emily would just start kicking around! I use to tell her Amy made her dance before she was born!

I so love "The Nativity" that came out a few Christmases ago - we went to see it on Christmas Eve and watched it last year on Christmas EVE.

However, when I watched Mel Gibson's "The Passion of the Christ" - the portrayal of Mary his mother went straight to my heart - I could so see the mother in her in me. To just watch those scenes with her is to know the heart of a mother.

Merry Christmas Teresa!

I love this song. My sister and I sang this with a childrens choir joining on the chorus for a holiday even two years ago and it is something I will never forget!! Listening to it here on your blog had all those memories rushing back!

One of my very favorite Amy Grant songs...one of my favorite Christmas songs, period. The lyrics are so simple and yet so profound.

God bless you and yours during this wondrous season!
