Her lover comes. Swiftly. He stands behind and lifts her dead weight and carries her, placing her gently and surrounding her with love.
Her son comes and places support at her back.
Another brings her first coffee of the day and places it in her hand.
The sun peeks over the horizon.
Everyone pauses...the light touches the landscape...the darkness flees before it. The clouds enhance the beauty...but it's the light....
Sheer wonder grips us all. We are compelled. We are captivated.
And WE worship.
Everything else finds it's proper place. Love wins. Her eyes close, her mind shifts and her focus is sharpened. Another day. Another chance to love. To share. To give everything she has...everything that comes from her maker...this is her offering. She is rich beyond measure. It is JOY unspeakable: full of glory.
This is her choice today.
What have you chosen today?
