Nan of the messiah

As I said in the previous post, Ruth went on to be an important player in the story of Christ. I mentioned in Zac's that I had resigned myself to the fact that I would never be the mother of the messiah to which Martin chimed in, 'You could be the Nan though,' which set him giggling again.

And that set me thinking. I assume Martin was agreeing that it was impossible for me to be mother of the messiah because I'm old and not a virgin, but who's to say the Messiah might not come again through the miracle of a post-menopausal old woman? God's thinking may be along the lines of, the young virgin's been done, let's try something different this time.

Except I think next time he comes will be with chariots and angels and stuff. But don't quote on me that; I'm not too hot on end of the world theology. Or any theology come to that.

I know about Jesus and that what matters.

I like your idea of the return of Christ coming thru a menopausal old bag! LOL Heck, even I'd be in the running!
