Merry Christmas Everyone!


Pregnant : Not his baby!

My name is Mary.

My mother and his broke the china plate....betrothed - I was to be his forever. Now, I carry a child that is not his!

Lower your brow and allow me explain;

About eight months ago - of years long past, a man came to me...he looked wonderful, never had I set my eyes on anything like him. Truth be told, he fitted the cliche "out of this world - an angel". ..." You are endued with grace! " he said..."You are unlike any woman!" he added...

My heart flattered....he told me not to fear, for I had found favor in the eyes of the greatest ONE. He said that I 'd have a bulge soon - but of-course I'd hoped, for Joseph - my fiancee had asked me to be his, and when he and I were one, my prayer was that his soldiers would match.

He- the man that had come to my house, dismissed my reasoning....and said..."not so!". For the timeliness in which I speak, is in the now. "Now?", I questioned - "now - how?? for I have never laid with a man...! never ever!".....

The bulge you will have will not be from human soldiers, - he said - but one who is the great ONE would cause His power to overshadow me and by this power would I conceive.

I believed him. "So be IT as you say", was my response.

He spoke of GOD. GOD had favored me - a hand maid to carry His Son. This was too lofty for me. But I had come to know that with God, nothing is ever impossible and no word from God shall be without power or impossible of fulfillment.

I sang.

 "I'm bursting with God-news;
      I'm dancing the song of my Savior God.
      God took one good look at me, and look what happened...
      I'm the most fortunate woman on earth!
   What God has done for me will never be forgotten,
      the God whose very name is holy, set apart from all others.
   His mercy flows in wave after wave
      on those who are in awe before him.
   He bared his arm and showed his strength,
      scattered the bluffing braggarts.
   He knocked tyrants off their high horses,
      pulled victims out of the mud.
   The starving poor sat down to a banquet;
      the callous rich were left out in the cold.
   He embraced his chosen child, Israel;
      he remembered and piled on the mercies, piled them high.
   It's exactly what he promised,
      beginning with Abraham and right up to now."

Next three months saw me stay at Elizabeth's house - she is my relative - also 6 months pregnant at the time of my arrival. After that I returned home and Joe! well Joe got to know about the bulge and decided to bail. Who can blame him?! In  his eyes, I had betrayed him - yet he loved me so....and to save me public shame...began to devise secret plans to break away from me.

But whatwouldthouknowest! Joe had a dream and in it, my God asked him to stay by me - and so did Joe.

That my reason, is why I carry a child that is not Joe's but a child who is described thus;

"His name will be called Jesus
He will be great,
      be called 'Son of the Highest.'
   The Lord God will give him
      the throne of his father David;
   He will rule Jacob's house forever—
      no end, ever, to his kingdom."

and Joseph knows deep down that he too is highly favored to be part of God's great plan.

In two weeks or so - as was then, the child I carry will be born. 

I write like its today but this happened many years ago at a time such as now.

I write to remind you of God's gift to mankind.

For God so loved the world that He sent His own begotten son, that we may live and not perish.

No one is without a gift this Christmas. God sent One that could be enjoyed by all.

Take time to understand my story - and I hope you'll be curious to find out what became of Jesus after his birth, his lifetime until His death.

I am but a handmaid called Mary.
