One in a Million

One in a Million

You’ll never guess what I heard the other day!
I mean it was just the weirdest thing!
A girl, who’s not yet 17, not yet 17,
is going to get pregnant – without, without, you know…
I didn’t believe it at first,
some strange stories do go around,
but then I went and asked my boss about it,
well – I wanted to know!
I said, “Is it true about Mary – she is called Mary isn’t she? –
is it true that she’s going to get pregnant without, without, you know…
turns out that Gabriel – that’s my boss –
is going to be the one who goes and tells her!
Well!
I asked Gabriel please, please, please could I go with him –
for the experience.
Of course, he said ‘no’.
But I kept on about it
and eventually he said that I could look through the window
if I was very still and very quiet.
So the next morning, I was positioned at the window
and Gabriel was in Mary’s house
Taking advantage of her parents being out.
You should have seen her face when she saw him
and then her face when he told her she was going to have a baby!
Without, ok, you know.
But the amazing thing is, she didn’t create a fuss or a scene,
she didn’t refuse outright or at all.
She just said that if that is what God wants for her, then she is ready to do his will.
What a girl!  A girl in a million I’d say.
Actually, a thought has just occurred to me.
God knew that she would react like that
and that’s why he chose her!
And here’s another thought –
she’s going to make an excellent mother for God’s son.
Now there’s someone who’s going to be one in a million million –
unique if you ask me.
But I’d better stop talking to you
otherwise I’ll have Gabriel after me.
See you later…
