Second of my Advent series written for the church I serve.

 

 
O Sweet Mary you’re only a child.
Your outlook is so gentle and mild.
At a time when your life’s just begun
you’re told you will give birth to a son.
 
A messenger came out of the blue
and said God had special plans for you.
You couldn’t believe your ears or eyes
at news that was more than a surprise.
 
Did you feel unworthy of this call?
Were you tempted to try to stall?
Why not draw up with an excuses list
to remind God of the things He’d missed?
 
You must have know this change in your life
would fill you with abundant strife.
When we’re faced with great struggles too
we pray we’ll try to follow you.
 
Advent is our time to prepare
just as if we were standing there
hearing our own special call
to guide us in life’s long haul.

Amazing that God should choose one so young and innocent as a vessel to bear His glory. But then, that's just like God.
