Thank you for the invitation
you so kindly extended,
inviting me to become pregnant
with the Prince of Peace.
What an honour to be asked,
and I am so grateful for your confidence in me.
The world needs a Saviour and it is to your credit
that you have remembered your promises.
I totally support your endeavors in this regard.
Circumstances being what they are,
I feel constrained to urge you to continue your search.
While I am personally enthusiastic about this project,
I know that my parents would definitely caution me
against over-extending myself, and taking on too much.
I can think of several women in my acquaintance
who are better suited for this task,
I would be happy to forward their names to you.
And if I can be entirely candid with you,
the long and the short of it is
the next few years are very full for me,
with my upcoming marriage to Joseph,
establishing our new home together,
and there is rumour of a census.
I just really don’t know how I would do justice
to the task of raising a newborn king,
given my busy schedule
and our uncertain travel plans.
I am sure you understand.
Please accept my apologies,
thank you again for the offer.
Give my kind regards to the Angel Gabriel,
it was such a pleasure meeting him.
All the best in your Godly work.
I remain, your humble servant,
