Read Psalm 40:1
Everyone is just waiting.
Waiting for the fish to bite
or waiting for wind to fly a kite
or waiting around for Friday night
or waiting, perhaps, for their Uncle Jake or a pot to boil, or a better break
or a string of pearls, or a pair of pants or a wig with curls or another chance. Everyone is just waiting.
