Orphelia drew this picture at age five, saying,
"This is Jesus and this is his light. And this is Mary and she's very happy. And this is Joseph and the shepherd with his stick. And this is the angel."

The Annunciation

The Annunciation as retold by Hannah, age 5:
Mary lived in a house. She was poor.
One day, an angel came and said to Mary, "Hail Mary, the Lord is with you."
Mary thought, "Ohhhhh!"
"Mary, do not be afraid of me," said the angel. "You are pregnant."
Jesus was in Mary's tummy.

I think God was in Mary's heart.
