Mary and Jo part3

Mares was gently sleeping, her breathing slow and thin yet inside her head, her brain was still in a spin. Just like Jo she was thinking back to when all this did begin.

She was in her room alone late at night when suddenly this stunning young man appeared,  it gave her such a fright. Before she could say a word he gently touched her mouth he smiled at her and all her questions and fears flew south.

Who are you and why are you here there will be trouble if my parents hear. Again he smiled and then he said the strangest thing she had ever heard “Hail Mary full of Grace” Mares eyes wide open stared into this strange man’s face.

He beckoned her to come near and then he whispered in her ear. Well he said the most outlandish things. He told he was an angel he even showed her his wings. A messenger from God was he, and Mary was pregnant  Just how could that be.

Gentle Mary you must not fear I told you God has sent me here, you alone have been chosen from all of womanhood to bare a son who will save the world by dying for them, that did not sound so good. The angel ask Mary if what he had said was clear, she was quiet and full of fear.

Things will not be easy the angel knew and many would point the finger at Mary it’s true. This was such an important things she had to do. Mary had not been pleased and asked just how she was to be with child , you are already the angel smiled.

The next month was no fun, her parents did not believe their daughter and friends thought her mad so she was shunned.Then one afternoon her friend Jo asked her to share his life he would love the child and her if she would be his wife. Mary asked if he believed her story was true he said he did and he had met an angel too. And so their strange story had begun .

Son I love you

you are still my baby.

It doesn’t seem so long ago but it is 38yrs I can’t believe it but I know that  it is so. It dose not matter where or how old you are you are still my shining first born star.

It hit me hard yesterday when you went on another aeroplane far away. Silly now it may be, you have travelled far and wide you see. But this trip bought it home to me. You are the first of three and though you all are dear to me. It was you and I that had to learn as we went along how to manage, care for and love and sing a nursery song. We made it up as we went along.

So as you go about your work today in that country so far away listen carefully and you will hear your mother say I  love you son and miss you while you are so far away.

It doesn’t seem so long ago but it is 38yrs I can’t believe it but I know that  it is so. It dose not matter where or how old you are you are still my shining first born star.
