It’s said that “hope deferred, makes the heart sick.” Beverleigh Anne Benjamin found the only effective treatment for a sick heart is waiting; and most of life happens in the waiting room. Hope Deferred is Benjamin’s story of her paradoxical struggle with finances, including bankruptcy and near-sheriff’s sale of her house, amidst a spiritual promise of wealth. The author shares her tug of war between hope and despair as well as nuggets of wisdom mined from both the manic peaks and the depressive valleys of her life. Benjamin shares such diverse insights as: what she’s learned about life from playing computer Solitaire, her obsession with well-functioning toilets, how she would have behaved (badly) in an imaginary and comical scenario with her in the role of a very pregnant Mary en route to Bethlehem, a “If You Give A Moose A Muffin-like” diatribe about what can happen when you need a new vacuum cleaner, how equity and equality are two very different concepts in child rearing, and her preference for the former, and how walking in the woods with God, in a picturesque part of Pennsylvania, kept her sane during the hard times.
