Then Sings My Soul Saturday~It Wasn't His Child

I love this song, it is about Joseph, Jesus' "earthly" father.

It is a beautiful song sung by Trisha Yearwood.

Enjoy! Scroll down and pause my music first.

Matthew 1:18-25
Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost. (19) Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a publick example, was minded to put her away privily. (20) But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost. (21)And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins. (22) Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, (23) Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us. (24) Then Joseph being raised from sleep did as the angel of the Lord had bidden him, and took unto him his wife: (25) And knew her not till she had brought forth her firstborn son: and he called his name JESUS.

UPDATE: I'm such a "dingdong"...I set this to post at 12:01 AM but I forgot to change the date!

ALSO: Thank you, Amy
for hosting Then Sings My Soul Saturday and her weekly giveaways every weekend till CHRISTmas...I won from last week. I am so excited...I never win anything. Whooo Hoooo! Thanks again, Amy! I can't wait to receive my Jeremy Camp CD.

Thank you all for all the sweet comments on our home at CHRISTmas! I still have a ton of things to do...make our CHRISTmas pictures today or tomorrow (usually done on Thanksgiving day), address 60 CHRISTmas cards, bake all the goodies my children like and wrap presents. Yikes...I've got to get busy.


  1. Very lovely, thanks for sharing.

  2. Come by my blog, there is an award for you.

  3. Beautiful!! I've never heard this song before, so I really enjoyed it!!

    Can you just imagine the awesome responsibility that Joseph felt--raising the son of God? WOW--and yet we read very little of Jesus' young life until the age of 12.



  4. Blessings Jennifer...How did I miss your Celine Dion with O Holy Night last week...I have to be visiting more, I see-we share likes.

    Thank you for sharing "It wasn't His Child" and the Bible story of Jesus' birth and giving honor to the earthly father chosen also for Jesus! Indeed, what an awesome responsibility to raise the son of God from a humble stable & carpenter lifestyle yet impress upon him so much as he watched Him grow. Knowing Jesus wasn't his!

    I miss out on so much but not listening more to country singers like Trisha Yearwood. Yet every time I hear one, I like it.

    Thank you for sharing and visiting me! I hope you are getting all the
    "busy ness" done so you can enjoy
    TSMSS & the presence of His Child Jesus with all your family & church family. Beautiful unique choice!

  5. I liked the song, had never heard it before. Also enjoyed Celine's song (LOVE her!). In fact, I left your page open and listened to some Christmas music while I did some other stuff! Thank you!

  6. I love this song! Trisha Yearwood is one of my favorites.

  7. I have never heard this song beautiful!


  8. I am days behind on visiting blogs. I had a horrible headache Friday, which kept me offline most of the day (my post for Friday had been set up the night before, a feat I've only recently learned to do). Saturday, although still headachy, my daughter and I went shopping and out to dinner/lunch (what do you call a meal you eat at 3:30?), then we watched a movie together. Hubby and son were doing a craft show.
    Yesterday we were busy with the new puppy (be sure to drop my blog to see her picture).

    Anyhow, I've missed you!! Now, though, I've got several days worth of your thoughts to read.

    About this post, I can't hear the music, but I LOVE that song. I've not heard her version, though. The one I hear is by Michael James, whom I never heard of except with this song. Although they play the song on my local Christian station, I think he must be a country artist, as he has a bit of the country twang to him.

    It Wasn't His Child and Joseph's Song (By Michael Card) are beautiful songs, both from the point of view of Joseph...who often gets lost in the Christmas story, but who is just as much a part of it as Mary. After all, God gave the baby Jesus to Mary, who was betrothed to Joseph.



Thank you for stopping by today and sharing your heart felt thoughts with me. As we ride "Through the Storms of Life" together, chances are...your situation is different than mine. However, we serve the same awesome God, King of Kings who is in complete control and it all belongs to Him anyway...He wants to give you the very best. Be encouraged my friend, God loves you!

Thank you again for taking the time to visit me at "Through the Storms of Life".
