God is quick to respond to my pleas.
He already gave an immediate answer to one of my prayers; for this I am thankful. But for the others, it seems I’m going to have to wait; He probably sees my need to master the virtue of patience, and to conquer my frustration.
It rained really hard when we were at church late in the afternoon; it was almost like the water from the heavens was crushing the ground; heaven pouring out its anger upon the earth, if I was quite the pessimist. But even superstition would state otherwise; for the rain was believed to bring good fortune. I would then hear the priest say something like, “The good and bad always go together in this world,” as he talked about the day’s Gospel reading in his homily; amidst the deafening heavy downpour, his voice was like thunder in the storm.
I’ll keep walking the road of life from here.
