GABRIEL’S OBOE?

https://fineartamerica.com/featured/gabriel-jennifer-buerkle.html?newartwork=true

I have a lot of questions about Archangel Gabriel. Now here I have pictured Gabriel as a woman, because really, would you want some buff, blindingly white robed, Fabio-haired male angel giving you the news you are about to become a seriously unwed mother in a village where that is probably going to get you stoned to death? I picture him blurting out the news, flipping his hair and taking off. I would want a nice lady who started out by saying, “Mary, dear. Sit down.” So that is how I interpret her. And she brought flowers!

I don’t think Gabriel showed up with a trumpet or an oboe. But remember, scripture was interpreted by MEN. But I do think if Gabriel did bring an oboe, this is what the archangel would have played. This version of Gabriel’s Oboe is sung by Nathan Pacheco, who does it clearly and beautifully. And the translation is worth pondering.

Whispers in a dream
The world is quiet and waiting
And all around the air is still
And sings the angels

When all is come to pass
The storm has breathed it’s last
And the rain has washed our fears away
Love will find

Whispers in the wind
The clouds part to let the light in And all around the people sigh
As birds take to the sky

When all is come to pass
The storm has breathed it’s last
And the rain has washed our fears away
Love will fall on us all
The world will smile again

Whispers in a dream
The world is quiet and waiting
And all around the air is still
Then sings the angels

When all is come to pass
The storm has breathed it’s last
And the rain has washed our fears away
Love will fall on us all
And we can smile again
