A woman experiences the Glory that is Jesus.

Her father and mother died

Her husband beat her and left her

She had no children, to care

The man  who  owed her big money

would he pay her back now

in the hour and time of her need?

Penniless, she waited to know

The dice would fall

The Glory that was Jesus

was not in his life only

but on the cross, helpless

Tasting that vinegar she waited

Which way would it go?

To give up one’s spirit or not?
