Sukkot for The Woman at the Well

Sukkot with the Woman at the Well

Powerless…

over others opinion…

 of her…

she again found herself 

ostracized

rejected

dejected

alone…

while

others 

celebrate the most joyous feast days

together

Sukkot …

the feast of Tabernacles

the time of the Messiah’s birth

the looking forward to His return

when He will rule His Kingdom…

with an iron fist…

and a balance of love…

she

alone…void of love…

while others celebrate 

joyous…dancing, feasting,

reveling…

with one another…

she…

Woman at the Well…

despised Samaritan…

  faces yet another commanded moadim

alone…

every season, 

every feast day, 

she wonders…

and wonders,

hopes

 prays

this time it will be different

this time someone will take notice

of her poverty, of her loneliness

and love her

accept her

give her a place 

at their table

at their camp

at their fire

like He commanded them to…

but…

again…

not this year…

not this time…

not this moadim

not this feast

she, alone…

will face another void of love…

and turn…

to her Savior…

her Beloved…

and seek His face…

His love…

His acceptance…

because

she

too

belongs

to the King…
