Snow is falling now. The first of the season. Tonight I am going to the movies with Abigail, Ann-Marie, Ray, and Jeni. We are going to see Romeo + Juliet. I haven’t been to the movies in a while. I am excited.
I wish someone would look at me and offer me a special smile; a smile so innocent that we both instantly feel the chills down our spine. I want to share love with someone. But for now, I’m simply seen as that great Christian friend, but nothing more.
Even if no one stands by my side, I will press forward. I’m surrounded by simple brief moments of peace and joy, and that is all I want. I fear they come more often than I am able to realize.
Life is passing by me. I sure do hope I’m noticing it. I guess that is why I’m writing in this Book of Days. It is only for me. I doubt anyone will ever read these words. But it helps me remember what is really important.
Heaven is real.
And sometimes I feel like it is already here.
