A Lifetime

In the morning of his day, the ambitious Lothario finds that the girl of his dreams is just out of reach.  There’s the matter of income, there’s the ideal of accomplishment, there are parental and other people’s expectations.

As he approaches sunset, he comes to realize that the woman he finally married is the woman who brings him his supper to the wheelchair, who kissed him in the night, who bore him sons and daughters, who reverences his name before the crowd.

Mysterious are the ways of our Father, of life as he unfolds the chapters.  Praised be his ways forever.
