This week’s Visual Dare considered the aspects of waiting, and gave us a lovely picture to play with as well.
Please play along, and enjoy the other wonderful ideas on their linked sites.
It was long since the priests bothered her as she came to sit in the chapel. Margaret had stopped expecting him to walk in the door, but maintained her vigil on the 1st of every month. They had agreed to meet there if they were separated. After the fire, she had never seen him again. The chapel was decorated for a wedding today, and full of joy.
While she waited, she watched as people prayed for forgiveness, strength, or hope. She knew she was worthy of none of those.
Surprisingly, “The Lord always provides what we need, in His own time.” came from behind her. A hooded priest had come up to her. This one must be new, for she didn’t recognize his deep voice.
She smiled and thanked him emptily as he walked away. No, she thought, the Lord didn’t need to provide, she’d take care of it herself.
