Whew, it has been one heck of a week. So much has happened, there’s no way I’ll be able to write it all down, but I’ll try.
On Friday the 13th, two girls got saved at church. Saturday’s drama practice was amazing, and then I filmed a short film for class. After church on the 15th, I went to Sterling’s house for lunch, and then over to Connie and Christian’s house for supper. On Tuesday I had dinner at Christin’s house and her mom Sherry dyed my hair super blonde for the play. Everyone loves it. On Wednesday, I did homework and had another TV studio shoot for class. I worked nine hours on Thursday, and then on Friday I worked and then watched four straight hours of Anne of Green Gables; I cried the whole time.
I saw Rebecca St. James in concert yesterday, and, while waiting in line, I ran into Sara, who went to South Africa with me. The concert was great, but the church was super conservative. I was the only one standing up, singing along, and dancing. Rebecca made eye contact with me and then invited everyone to stand and praise the Lord with her. She then looked directly at me again and smiled. The crowd sat back down, and I moved over to the side aisle to dance and sing and clap. She kept glancing over there at me, as if to say, “what’s wrong with these people, why did they show up if they are just going to sit there?” It felt like it was just her and I praising the Lord together.
It was priceless.
