Friday night I went with David and Cindy to Hampton to go to a revival service at Bethel Temple. And once we entered, David and I went into the bookstore there. I immediately saw a beautiful young woman with the most amazing smile, hair, facial features, wow! She was reading a book, and her beauty struck me so suddenly, I couldn’t help but verbalize it out loud. David heard me, but she didn’t.
We looked at some music and then sat down and after some time, she came and sat next to me with her parents and grandparents. I didn’t say anything. She began talking to me and we really seemed to enjoy each other’s company.
The service was great. We prayed a lot for our nation due to all of this Clinton sex stuff, and U.S. strikes on Sudan and Afghanistan. As we were leaving she asked me if I would be back for another Friday night service. I told her I wasn’t sure, but I asked her for her phone number and she happily gave it to me. She lives in Chesapeake, in a place called Deep Creek (imagine that) and she works at Greenbrier mall at a Christian bookstore; that’s only five minutes from my apartment! She asked me to come and see her there.
I told her I would.
I worked today and then went to be an extra on a student film being shot nearby. I learned so much by just watching. I stayed on set for about two and a half hours.
I ended the day talking with my brother and dad over the phone. My brother has decided not to return to college and I felt this desire to lovingly confront my father about his pornography addiction. I felt God directed our conversation and I hope some healing has begun in his heart.
I am smiling so brightly. I love you Lord!
