I rush toward her, my mind fumbling for words to ask that impossible question. Two steps away, my lips part just as a little boy darts from behind a market stall. ” I lower my head and turn away, feeling foolish. And yet, I cannot shake the feeling of that holy presence in my bedchamber, nor any longer deny that the archangel’s voice still rings in my ear. Did he not say he knew of my cousin, Elizabeth? That Jehovah had visited her too? Once and for all, I must learn if it is true. I head home to pack.

I excuse myself for the night, needing to lose myself for a while in the world of sleep. Good-bye I hug my quiet kinsman, Zechariah, and wish Elizabeth well, though I hardly need to. The blessed birth of her son is only a few weeks away at most, and she is blissful. I leave her in the able care of her midwife, and say my last good-byes. Lord Jehovah, make the months fly until we are together again, until her little John meets my Jesus. Neighborly Entering Nazareth, once again we come upon a riotous crowd, closed tight around someone, or thing.

I scratch my memory with a finger of thought. Come on, Mister. Think! I tell myself. But it’s no use.
