Waiting can be external or internal, from waiting to across the street to waiting for Jesus’ return. Waiting involves time no matter how long or short. I remembered waiting with a father-to-be in front of the delivery room for hours. I also remembered waiting to get out of a very difficult situation for years. Waiting can evoke all kinds of emotions but it always involves faith, otherwise why wait?
I am not sure what this man is waiting for… the fish? his loved ones? or the time to past?
