This piece is a 40 minute Christmas production about Mary and Joseph, and how they were commissioned to be the parents of Christ. The beautifully orchestrated music includes excerpts from the motion picture soundtrack "Chocolat". This is a unique story that brings to life what might have been the history behind the calling placed on Mary and Joseph's lives. Commissioned is a one of a kind program that will leave you amazed at the love of our God and His desire to send a Savior.
Part of the story showed how Mary's friends reacted to her going to have a baby. To say the least, they were not nice to her. After they left and had had baby Jesus they had this lovely scene where Joseph, Mary and baby Jesus (he was a real baby in the show and was put in a wooden bassinet) where kneeling under a large wood cross. The other gals were dancing while a beautiful recording was played. It spoke about how baby Jesus needs to rest tonight because he was entering a world that would hate Him. To rest his sweet baby hands because he would be King, but would never have gold or silk. He would use his hands to heal people with leprosy. To rest his mouth, because God's word would be spoken out of it. To rest his baby feet, because he would walk and share God's love with many people.
It was just lovely. As I sat there crying, all I could think about was how God, the Father, knowingly and willingly gave His one and only Son for me. So that I could join him in heaven for all eternity! As a mom, I can't even being to comprehend how God felt with knowing that His Son was going to be put on a cross. It just amazes me. It is just mind boggling. I can't comprehend that love he has for strangers.
I know we are all busy with cards, gifts and cooking, remember as this Christmas Season is here, why we are celebrating. The greatest gift ever to be given is Jesus being born into this world, to save me and you. He loves you and wants to have a relationship with you this day.
I wish I could show you the ballet show from church. You can look at their site and if you get a chance, go see them! They are amazing!
Have a very Merry Christmas! Remember Jesus is the Reason for the Season.
We love you!
