We're in the second week of Eastertide and today is the transferred day to celebrate The Feast of the Annunciation.  This is an image by Fra Angelico.  I thought to find it because today's author of the Forward Day By Day meditation mentions it:



"Mary, seated, and Gabriel, on one knee, incline slightly toward each other, arms crossed in mirrored gestures of respect.  Alone within a walled garden, they seem to be listening in a silence both intimate and vast.  This is the moment, one feels, between announcement and response, when (as Martin Luther puts it) all creation held its breath, waiting for her answer." 

"Let it be with me according to your word." - Luke 1:26-38
