No One Knows I'm (Spiritually) Pregnant

Almost no one in my real life knows I'm spiritually pregnant.  It's like I'm carrying around this most marvelous secret.  Mary did, too, after Gabriel's visit.  Pregnant and unmarried, expecting Joseph to divorce her because how could even he believe this story?  "Conceived by the Holy Spirit".  My mind, my soul, my heart, even my body is smiling at my special secret.  Life is so different when you know you really carry Jesus with you everywhere you go.
