1. The Visit
Mary was busy cleaning the house when suddenly the room was filled with light. Mary stood there, frozen, with the broom in her hand mid-sweep. What on earth was happening? Then a voice! She dropped the broom in fright.
‘Don’t be afraid’.
That’s easy for you to say, thought Mary.
‘God has chosen you to bear his child.’
‘I think I need to sit down,’ said Mary.
‘God has chosen you Mary to give birth to his son and you will call him - Jesus.’ said the Angel.
‘But...’ stuttered Mary.
‘No buts. Now go and tell Joseph the fantastic news.’
So Mary went to find Joseph and shared with him all that had happened and they were filled with joy and excitement.
