Mara: [praying out loud] How could you let this happen?! I thought you said everything would be okay. I was happy! I was content! I was gonna marry the man I love and we were gonna be happy together! Why couldn't you just leave well enough alone?!

AngeliqueStrothers - on 12/06/2011

Angel: [walks in from nowhere-upstage R- and startles Mara] Because well enough wasn't good enough, Mara.

AngeliqueStrothers - on 12/06/2011

Mara: [turns startled] What? [deep sigh] What are YOU doing here? Haven't you done enough already?

Angel: Not nearly. Now that I've got your full attention...

Mara:[cuts him off] You know, I don't really care to hear anything else you have to say to me. You've ruined my life!

AngeliqueStrothers - on 12/06/2011

Angel: Mara, you may not want to hear what I have to say, but you WILL hear what the LORD has to say

AngeliqueStrothers - on 12/06/2011

Mara: [slides back on couch with an attitude] Whatever.

AngeliqueStrothers - on 12/06/2011

Angel: Mara, why are you so angry?

AngeliqueStrothers - on 12/06/2011

Mara: Really?! You really have to ask that?! I'm not married, I'm pregnant, and the man I wanted to spend the rest of my life with won't even answer my phone calls!

AngeliqueStrothers - on 12/06/2011

Angel: What God has chosen you for is an honor.

AngeliqueStrothers - on 12/06/2011

Mara: I know that! But why me; why NOW?!

AngeliqueStrothers - on 12/06/2011

Angel: Mara, you had a GOOD life; but what kind of a Father would God be if He allowed you to live a GOOD life, when what He really had in store for you was a GREAT life?

AngeliqueStrothers - on 12/06/2011

Mara: What?! How is this GREAT?!

AngeliqueStrothers - on 12/06/2011

Angel: Mara, in order for you to develop into the best you that you can be God HAS to allow you to be tested so that you can grow. This is not only an honor for you, but a test to see if you'll really TRUST Him like you say you do on Sundays.

AngeliqueStrothers - on 12/06/2011

Mara: [stops and thinks for a moment] Oh, wow. I've been thinking about this all the wrong way. I've been wondering how this is all gonna affect me, but I lost sight of what's important.

Angel: [promting her].... Which is?.......

AngeliqueStrothers - on 12/06/2011

Mara: This..... NONE of this is about me, it's about God! God chose me for such a great honor, but I was so focused on me and how I'd be affected that I totally put God on the back burner not even thinking that EVERYTHING HE does has a purpose.

AngeliqueStrothers - on 12/06/2011

Angel: [smiles] NOW, I've done enough. I'll be seeing you. By the way, when HE said everything would be okay... HE meant it.

Mara: [smiles staring into space ahead of her. Turns to ask him a question, but he's already gone]I know everything will be alright now... I just gotta trust God.

[Knock at the door. Mara stands and crosses to answer. She opens the door and Joe is standing there.]

Joe: Can I come in?

AngeliqueStrothers - on 12/06/2011

Mara: [flustered] Sure.

LIGHTS OUT. CURTAIN
