This is a story about divine delay not only at the end of our life but all throughout our life. It is a reminder that God does not function according to our clocks and calendars. We cannot put the Almighty on a time schedule. Divine delays are an expression, not of rejection, but of love. If somehow, we can see that, our flame of faith will not go out. We will have the extra oil that enables us to rekindle it and keep it burning, during times when we need it most.
