I believe God knew how happy she would be with the news though. Who wouldn't be?

There is a difference between free choice and free will? They are both one & the same unless you want to be anal and toy with semantics. And if it is indeed limited then it is not free choice at all
Anyways, my question is this: Since Jesus was a being in heaven, wherever that is, how did he get from there to Mary's uterus? Did he become a sperm, and swim into Mary's egg? Did an Angel artificially inseminate sperm Jesus into Mary's egg like we can do today?
I would agee with the idea of God not being a "being" in the normal sense of the word.
. . .you need to think of God as not being an actual being, but a presence that is in all things and jesus being the human embodiment of this spirit. . .
