“I drop to my knees, drawing closer to the source of my discomfort and torture. They surround me, mocking me, each one laughing in its own way, taunting my desire to reassemble all the wrongs into something beautiful once again. Alas! I know that all is for naught, that there will never be a desirable climax. My heart aches.” Crying, she surveys the floor around her.
“There is no doubt, ,i.no doubt,/i., that soon I must surrender to the judgment of my master. My body shivers at the thought of facing the terrible truth. Strength must be summoned from chasms of my soul never before exploited. I must prevail and believe that God will assist me in my endeavor, as I know that He will.” There, on her knees, she prays, asking God to turn this terrible accident into something positive. She hears someone approaching.
“Nancy, can you come help me with the groceries?” Nancy’s mom was walking into the kitchen as she spoke, then stopped, as she saw Nancy on her knees, in the middle of the kitchen floor, sobbing. Her daughter was surrounded by pieces of broken porcelain.
“Mom, I am so sorry! This is the cup and saucer that Grams gave you from her trip to Paris. I know they meant a lot to you.”
“Ha ha ha. Look on the shelves. We have at least eight other cups and saucers from her other trips. I think we are blessed enough.” She winks at her daughter who is now smiling and silently thanking God.
“Now get this cleaned up, please. Remember, you have your Drama Class this afternoon. I hope that you have been practicing.”
Job 16:6 NIV “Yet if I speak, my pain is not relieved; and if I refrain it does not go away.”
