The sun lingers as if to say,
for just a tiny moment, I wish I could stay
before my rays, my warmth must depart
to gather tomorrow’s flowers from nightly dreams
and sprinkle in mountain meadows
and morning beams
Thanks for stopping by and reading my blog! I post weekly poems on my website the Poet’s Heart for those who enjoy poems.

Few things give greater insight into the Savior, & who he was, than his relationship with others, especially women and children. With Christmas approaching, we are focusing on Mary, the mother of Jesus.
Mary is unique among all women in her divine role in giving birth to the Messiah. Her story is fascinating, regardless of whether we are Catholic, Muslim, or Later Day Saints. And yet, for the countless pages that have been written about her, we still know so little about Mary, the person, & Mary, the Mother of God.
Here are 4 videos that provide some insight into this great woman and the birth of the Savior:
Mary, the Mother of Jesus
The Video, produced by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, reflects the quiet devotion and strength of Mary. Worth viewing. 2:21
An Angel Foretells Christ’s Birth to Mary
The angel Gabriel’s visit to Mary to announce the coming of Jesus. See Luke 1:26-38
Another video well worth viewing. Video time: 4:08
Mary and Elisabeth Rejoice Together
Mary visits her relative Elizabeth who both rejoice in the coming birth. See Luke 1:39-55
Video time: 5:07
Mary and Joseph Travel to Bethlehem
Mary and Joseph travel to Bethlehem where they cannot find a place to stay at an inn. Instead they find room only in a stable…. See Luke 2:4-7 Video time: 2:06
