Hi! Last night at church, I became a member. Everyone came up and shook my hand and hugged me. Crystal was there; she hugged me. But Laura and her family were not there. People I didn’t know hugged me. They welcomed me. Strangers talked to me like I was their best friend.
New stories begin almost every day. We all ate at Peggy’s again last night, Charlie, Molly, Jason, Caroline, Shawn, Dan and myself.
When I got home I called my house and left mom and Henry a message, “Hi guys, this is your son Jacob. I called to tell you that I became a member of Heaton Christian Church tonight. Things are really good and I want to thank you for bring me up in a Christian home. I love you both.”
I’ve been thinking about this summer. I don’t want to go to summer school, but I want to try and stay in this area, simply because of my church. I called mom today and told her that. She said whatever I wanted was okay. She also said thank you for the message and that Henry had tears in his eyes.
I read the second section of my 6th Book of Days yesterday and today. Those warm summer evenings. Fishnet. Deep Creek. If only I had known.
But I know now.
And that is good enough.
