Prompt: Christmas Eve
“I’m not going to Midnight Mass this year,” Debbie said quietly. “Carl’s not Catholic, and it doesn’t feel right, not anymore.”
“The list of things the Church and I don’t agree on keeps getting longer. And I sit in the pew holding my tongue, and you know how bad I am at that,” Debbie laughed weakly.
“The Church is beautiful, but it’s lonely and cold. I don’t feel God there.” Debbie wiped her eyes. “I feel God here, with you. So I guess this is my church now.”
Debbie set the poinsettia in front of the headstone. “Merry Christmas, Vic.”
