So much to say.
Marie and I have had a wonderful past few days.
On Sunday night we played Bible Trivia with each other, as well as spending many moments staring at each other silently. She beat me in the game, but she tried so hard to at least let it be a tie. Before I left we stood face to face and I touched her face and told her of her beauty. We kind of held hands for a second or two.
Yesterday, Eddie from Lees-McRae came in for our Dang! rehearsal. Marie was here when he showed up; we all hung out for a while. I later took Eddie out to eat.
The rehearsal went great! I also saw Marie afterward, and we talked for awhile and affirmed each other. We spent time just touching each others’ hands and each others’ faces. It was the most beautiful of moments. She is so soft. I feel horrible for ever writing the same thing about another girl.
We shared much with each other tonight. An amazing thing is beginning. She makes me feel beautiful. She told me of how her mother and sister both know and approve of me. Her world knows of me.
She played an old Twila Paris song for me about the child in me finding the child in you. We listened to it and held hands. We even spoke of how great it would be to sit with each other in church.
You are so good God.
All of this is from you.
She is yours, not mine.
