Breath of Heaven

Perhaps I ate one too many slices of that pumpkin christmas pie?
When I woke this christmas I suddenly was much much larger than I remembered. None of my clothes fit, so I decided to swathe myself in blue cloth. For some unknown reason everyone started calling me Mary? It was all very strange. Luckily I met a lovely fellow named Joseph!
Hmm seriously now...
I was lucky enough to portray the role of Mary in the christmas story at my church this year. A total childhood dream.  I was asked to sing a song for the service, the words speak for themselves.

I have travelled
Many moonless nights
Cold & weary
With a babe inside
And I wonder what I've done
Holy Father
You have come
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 holyness
For your holy, Breath of heaven

Do you wonder
As 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
Help me

Breath of heaven.

Love you all
Dear Miss Pretty xx
