The big deal is that Mary had never been with a man, so this was no ordinary baby. You see, Jesus could not be interpreted to be a child of man in any possible way. He had to come to this earth in a special way. That's why he was announced ahead of time by an angel directly to his earthly mother and father. His coming was also foretold by the prophets for many generations beforehand. And why He came by birth from a virgin. So no one could say that Him being here was anything less than a miracle.
Have you ever experienced a miracle? Especially in your writing? Some people call this a "character driven novel". The idea is that you create your characters and they take on such a life of their own that they drive the story forward. I prefer to call it the God-driven novel. I believe that He has put certain characters, traits, storylines, and issues on our hearts to be utilized in our stories. Without God, there would be no story. If you have ever experienced this, you will know.
I have experienced this many times, but none so prevalent as my encounter with 'the feather'. Stay tuned for the next blog post. Since that one incident, I have always used the phrase:
His stories, My fingers.
See life differently.
