Diligence – Careful nature in one’s actions and work. Foritude.
Check out it’s 7sins counterpoint Sloth.
Sometime’s even angel’s forget the details of how things come to be. If the pain is taken away from them, where does it go?
“Someone is after the Arch Angel’s blood?” Joseph looks concerned.
“We bleed in only two circumstances,” Caleb smiles, “And it is easy to just release our wings in a confined place. No need to worry.”
“Does it hurt?” He touches one of Caleb’s feathers.
“Not usually. There is a special angel that takes our pain away so that we may fight without fear in the name of the Holy One.” He walks along the corridor with confidence.
“Usually?” Joseph steps down and follows him through.
“The angel was missing for quite some time; on Earth some say.”
“Did the angel forget the coming war?”
“No, she was on a mission.”
This is from the same universe as my story Torn… but possibly won’t be in the Torn story until maybe a book 2, it is later in the story line. I still am in shock every time I write something that has the angels being so oblivious and forcused on the main goal that they don’t realize that the Angel of Tears has to suffer for every moment of pain they are relieved from. But I still enjoy the concept and writing the story. Hope you enjoy the 100 word minis
My take on dilegence today was based off of two angles, 1 being that the angels are focused on protecting heaven and the other being how steadfast the Angel of Tears is to the cause by giving up her own freedom to take on the pain of others.
Preview: Patience – “‘Freedom?’ This felt anything but free…”
