Giving it all

easter 2012 035

She knew in her heart that she couldn’t afford it – not this time.

That the cost would leave her with nothing.

But she dug into her chest anyway.

Sifting through it, looking for valuables.

Security if things didn’t work out.

An advance to cover the expense.

But nothing was valuable enough to cover what she’d owe herself if it turned out to be a mistake.

Only the chest itself could pay such a price, in full.

Still, with nothing to fall back on, she offered everything she had.

Putting her heart on the line.
