November 11, 1995 – Saturday – 4:29 p.m.


The cover of this journal is white.  I couldn’t find a green one.  But right after I bought this at the K-Mart in Boone, it began snowing.  I found that interesting.

So, welcome to My 10th Book of Days.  It appears as if it is going to be a rough winter.  An entire week has passed since My Ninth Book of Days ended.  I’ve been video-taping the dance concert every night since Tuesday.  Scott called me.  I was surprised.  We talked for a while.  We mainly talked about all of the problems concerning Kevin, John, and Tenielle.  Scott told me frankly, “Jacob, John and I were talking to Pastor Steve about you.  We all agreed that you were the smart one.  You left and began a new life.  These problems here don’t concern you anymore.  Be grateful for that.”

And he is right.  The job I needed to do at Abundant Life is complete.  That is why I am here now.

Today I went to Boone with Amy, Lindy, Katie, Kelley, and Becky.  I bought a scarf, some popcorn, and this pure white journal.  The picture outside my window perfectly resembles cold and freezing loneliness.  Hopefully my soul will be the opposite this winter.
