This morning while reading Luke chapter 1 to Emily, where Mary, a virgin, one, has an encounter with an angel; two, learns she’s pregnant; and three, that the baby in her womb isn’t any guy’s baby (since she’s a virgin) but the very Son of God, the following conversation took place:
Me: Sweetie, do you know what is so amazing about the way Jesus came to earth? Well, see that part where the Bible says that Mary is a virgin?
Me: Well, a virgin is a person who has not had sex. Do you remember when we talked about that?
Me: Do you remember what has to happen in order to make a baby grow in a mommy’s belly?
Me: Do you remember what a daddy has inside him that is special that has to fertilize the mommy’s egg?
