Afraid of losing the only person left who loves her, Faith follows her widowed mother-in-law to a new home. But God has plans for Faith...plans that include a new love, hope, and a future. Can Faith open her bruised and hurting heart to allow a loving God and a loving man back in?
Once they finished lunch, they hauled buckets of the flowering bushes to the jobsite.
Faith pulled on her gloves and grabbed one, only to turn around and run right into Ben.
“Whoa!” Ben put his arms around her and the plant, holding steady. He gazed into her eyes for eternity, then bent his head and brushed his mouth against hers. Time fell away as they explored everything the kiss promised.
She forgot to breathe, forgot to think, forgot everything as joy flooded her being.
He stepped back, a contented smile on his face. “I plan to do that more often.”
“I hope so.” For the rest of the day, Faith didn’t feel the hot sun, the strain of back muscles, or the calluses forming on her hands as they worked side by side to plant the Rose Of Sharon bushes on the path to the gazebo. It felt good to work with a companion on something they both loved. We have so much in common, God. Is what I am beginning to feel real? Guide me in righteousness, God, because I think I’m beginning to like this man a lot more than as a boss.
