Poor Mary... Very creative take on the topic. It must have been so hard for her and you brought that out nicely.
Your writing of Mary's thoughts of this time in her life are excellent. (especially concerning her friends banter in contrast to Mary's contemplation over the recent news from the angel). This is so wonderfully written. You've given depth to the Biblical story. Great work!
Ditto to the above comments, good job!
Your take on this is excellent, and very believable. I like that Mary's thoughts and feelings are easy to relate to, yet it still seems to fit in a biblical time frame.
This would be a great dramatic reading for the first sunday of Advent. Nicely done.
This retelling of the Bible story from Mary's POV is just plain wonderful. You have done a super job. Well done Betsy!
I especailly liked this line-"The side of the well pressed against her belly."

Your words put me in her shoes, I loved hearing her thoughts and concerns. WELL DONE!
