October is ending.
And my life is beginning.
“Masks” is a beautiful piece. So many tell me it is their favorite dance of the show. They even like it better than what X-Factor, our professional dance company, does. But I think it is only great because I covered it in prayer.
I hugged Abigail after the show last night. She is so soft. She held my hand and I held hers. We both looked into each other’s eyes and said “thank you.”
We had Bible Study after the show, but due to Charlie’s shout out with Kate, and a lot of girls overheard it, he decided to let me lead. He didn’t even show up. We praised the Lord for so long last night and I gave a simple message about knowing truth. Emily was there; that’s Emily from my scene with Mason, not “my” true Emily from Crestview. She cried. She will belong to the Lord very soon. Jesus can change anyone and everyone.
Abigail gave a testimony about how she has finally come to peace with her life and she looked at me the whole time. We shared so many smiles last night.
We have spent a small amount of time together each day and we seem to grow closer. I undoubtedly go to sleep the happiest man in the world every night. We sat next to each other during lunch. Her uncovered knee touched mine and it took her a few seconds before she pulled away.
I believe her parents are coming tomorrow. I wonder if they’ll see me any differently. Perhaps she as shared with her mom the small things that have happened between us. Perhaps not. Perhaps it is all in my head; like last time.
Jeni called me last night. She said she has been thinking about me a lot recently. She seemed sad and even cried over the phone. I told her about the 27 people at Bible Study and how everything has been forgiven and set free between everyone.
So now, it is only appropriate that I thank my Jesus. He has given me this peace. He has given me Abigail’s smile again, so if it that smile goes away, it won’t break my heart completely. Through her smile, he has shown me a grace that is way more than I deserve.
I’ve never been so in love with Jesus. He gives me my dance in the shower. He gives me my minutes in each hour. This peace is indescribable. I wear no mask. I’m surrounded by his love.
I want nothing but to worship you Lord.
Spring worship unto thee.
