Julian’s Grace by Jessica Tilles
In a heated rush, traffic barreled up and down Georgia Avenue, NW, in Washington, DC, going nowhere too fast. Julian Winters stood before the bay window, peering through the blinds, wishing he were amongst the traffic, escaping the sterilized smell that caused his stomach to flip about like a fish out of water. This wasn’t one of his favorite days, but then again none of them had been lately.
“Life wasn’t meant to be lived so hurried,” he fussed between clinched teeth. “But then again, it’s short as hell.”
He pressed his palms against the cool windowpane and lowered his head. Desperately trying to suppress the inner pain, after spending so much time at Howard University Hospital, was difficult for him. As much as he wanted to scoop her up from her sickly bed, and fly away to a destination where cancer didn’t run rampant, he knew it was impossible and the inevitable was around the corner.
As he raised his head, he slowly opened his eyes and gazed up at the blue sky, challenging his once strong faith in God. Daily, Julian questioned God, not knowing what He was trying to prove by taking away the most precious life that meant the world to him. Was it something he did in his past, to build anger in God? As far as Julian was concerned, God must have been harboring anger toward him, and taking his beloved Grace was his punishment. All his life, he felt God was a forgiving God, so why couldn’t He forgive Julian of his past sins, whatever those were?
