Let us continue!
Yesterday, I went to Jenna and Tenielle’s. It was wonderful to be there. They had The Lion King so we watched it. That is the 5th time I’ve seen it and the 2nd time with Jenna and Tenielle. Tenielle braided my hair and experimented with it in other ways while we watched the movie. Afterwards, Jenna and Tenielle were getting ready to go their separate ways. Tenielle and a friend were going to be volunteer workers for some pet shop, while Jenna and two other friends were going roller skating.
Jenna needed me to take her and her friends there, so I did. Then, I went to McDonald’s to see what time Kevin got off work. He said, 4:30 and it was 2:45 p.m. So, I went back to the Skating Ranch and skated for an hour. Jenna’s boyfriend Roy was there. Just another punk kid I suppose. But as before, it is all still a game to her.
It felt good to skate there again. It brought back some old memories.
I love those memories.
That was over a year ago.
I left around 4:00 to go get Kevin and then we came home.
Marcus and Mike came over and we played some Super Nintendo. Then, Marcus and Kevin and I went to a 9:35 showing of Outbreak. Mike couldn’t go. Outbreak is a wonderfully suspenseful movie.
Sunday arrived and I went to church. Praise and Worship was so amazing. Ryan and Amy and Cheryl showed up and sat next to me. Then Jenna, Tenielle and Jenna’s two friends from yesterday came in and they all sat with us.
It was good to hear Pastor Steve preach again.
For the afternoon I went to the Neal’s and watched three movies: Rookie of the Year, Ghost, and Sleepless in Seattle; all movies I had seen only once before. It was great to just lay back and relax.
John leads the 15-18 year old youth group and it was wonderful. Tonight he talked about the words we speak and he taught me so much.
It has been a wonderful first two days back.
Yesterday, as Jenna and I were messing and playing around, I accidentally hurt her cheek. So I kissed it to make it better.
Tonight, as Jenna and Tenielle were leaving, I gave Tenielle a hug and kissed her on her cheek.
The “I will” has switched from a goodbye to a return.
I walked on the railroad tracks tonight and began to thank the Lord for my friends. Marcus is still the same wonderful Marcus. Everything is exactly the same in a way, but it is also totally different.
And Jesus had to bring me back here to open my eyes.
I can see Lord.
