Just a Girl

She was just a girl. Girls weren’t highly valued in her culture, so imagine her surprise to be visited by an angel! The message Gabriel brought was even more amazing. God had chosen her to be the mother of the long-awaited Messiah. She could have said, not me, no way, but she didn’t, she only asked how. When Gabriel explained how, she said, let it be so. And, then it was so. This devout young girl, spiritual mature for her age, agreed to bear this special child without a husband. In spite of the derisions to her reputation and humiliating gossip this decision would bring, if it was God’s will, it was her will. Thus, she will always be known as Mary, the mother of God!
