"Jesus said Mother I couldn't stay another day longer
Flys right by me and leaves a kiss upon her face
While the angels are singin' his praises in a blaze of glory
Mary stays behind and starts cleaning up the place"
-Patty Griffin
those lyrics make me cry every single time i hear them. just thinking about Jesus having a mother. someone that gave birth to him and loved him not only as a Savior but as her son. what a beautiful picture of the humanity of Jesus. he had a mother. it sounds so simple, but i just love it. it makes me love Jesus more.
here is a cover of patty's song by erin mccarley.
i kind of think erin mccarley and i would be good friends if we knew each other. i mean our names are almost the same and she is from dallas. oh and she must love patty if she covers one of her songs.
