Gabriel's Announcement
(Luke 1:26-28)

Now in the sixth month [after that], the angel Gabriel was sent from God to a town of Galilee named Nazareth, to a girl never having been married and a virgin engaged to be married to a man whose name was Joseph, a descendant of the house of David; and the virgin's name was Mary. And he came to her and said, "Hail, O
favored one [endued with grace]! The Lord is with you! Blessed [favored of God] are you before all other women!" (Luke 1:26-28)

I loved doing this. In my inner vision, I could see and feel these huge glistening wings. I pictured Gabriel as a loving messenger and Mary as gentle and submissive to the Lord's will for her life.
