Waiting

Backyard-AKPhoto“I had tended to view waiting as mere passivity,” says author Sue Monk Kidd in her memoir. “When I looked it up in my dictionary, however, I found that the words ‘passive’ and ‘passion’ come from the same Latin root, *pati,* which means ‘to endure.’ Waiting is thus both passive and passionate. It’s a vibrant, contemplative work . . .

It involves listening to disinherited voices within, facing the wounded holes in the soul, the denied and undiscovered, the places one lives falsely.

Are you devoted enough to refrain from leaping into action for now? Are you strong enough to bide your time?
