Unthinkable


The angelic body bowed low

in adoration

Before the woman soon-to-be-

with child.

"Blessed," he called her.

"Why?" she asked.

"Chosen," was his answer.

He waited. She wondered.

"How? Not now," she said.

"God changes time," said

the messenger.

"A son but no husband?

A mother before

being a

wife?"

"Impossible!" she pro-

tested.

"Exactly," he smiled.
