Mary was a young lady who loved God very much. Mary was engaged to be married to Joseph. Joseph was a carpenter, he worked with wood to build things. Joseph loved God very much too. God loved Mary and Joseph. God choose Mary and Joseph to be very special parents to a baby that would be our Lord and Saviour, the King of all Kings
God sent the Angel Gabriel to tell Mary the special news. The Angel said "Greetings, you are highly favored! The Lord is with you." The Angel could tell that Mary was troubled. "Mary, Do not be afraid," Gabriel said, "I bring you Good News. God has chosen you to be the Mother to the Son of God, and you shall name him "Jesus".
Mary was surprised, and asked "How can that be? I am not married yet." The Angel said "The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the holy one to be born will be called the Son of God."
Mary replied, "I love God with all my heart. I will do whatever he asks."
Mary went to stay with her cousin, Elizabeth, who was also pregnant with child. When Joseph found out that Mary was with child he was concerned because he knew that the child was not his. Joseph and Mary had not married yet. As Joseph was considering what to do, an Angel appeared to him in his dream.
The Angel said "Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins."
When Joseph woke up he did what the angel of the Lord commanded him and took Mary home as his wife.
