Secrets women keep to themselves are as special as the way Mary, the mother of Jesus, held the words of the angels in her heart as they told her about the boy she was to birth into the world. The way women regard themselves mirrors how they see other women.
If Mary was held up in the light of her knowing one could allow the mind to see a young dark skinned Hebrew woman in the cultural setting of her people for insight into how she could hold a secret from a high place. She was not trapped by the weakness of white and Black American women. She was hemmed up within the culture that held virginity high, and being betroth was akin to marriage, but was not because law held strict standards of impeccability the average modern women would balk at. It is not that they could not live up to those high standards. The choice is not to. - Gregory E. Woods, Keeper of Stories Dec. 21, 2016
