We were now; Wives, Momma's or future Momma's, and life had taught us a thing or two.
But my reward wasn’t a triumphant reunion with my poor little phone. It was the smack-in-the-face reality that my phone had never been turned in. And she’s totally gonna suffer the consequences when I rat her out to the federal grand jury.
We went to dinner, caught up on our week and arrived at Grace Community Church, it's an amazing and personal space set up perfectly for praise and worship. A great comedian; Anita Renfroe, brought light to our everyday and to the night ahead. She knows that in order to make it through this life we must laugh at ourselves everyday! She stated that her and her Husband gave a gift to Jesus from their hearts; they promised that for 365 days they would reach out to a live person and give them a little bit of their time, a little bit of their money, and/or a little bit of their encouragement; in order to touch 365 lives whom God knew they would be a Blessing to. I want to be that person who gives time, money and encouragement. I hope that everyone is given the opportunity to experience a night like I had on Friday...cause I know that God is working...working lots.
Who knows what would have happened had we stayed friends during our teenage years but I do know that as adults, I don't plan on letting the years gap, ever again. for the next almost 3 hours God was in that room and in my heart as a renewal of my Faith and Love for Him!
God was right in bringing us back together as adults; we appreciate each other, accept one another and bring new light into each other lives.
Armed with this delusion, I lurched my way to the back of the bus as it rumbled down the street. But, flush with the idea that karma is a benevolent mistress, I rushed the phone up to the bus driver so she could turn it into the CTA’s lost and found.
And when I got to my seat—and here finally is the part you’re not going to believe—there was a goddamned cell phone sitting right where I usually plop my butt. And when I got to work this morning I called the CTA’s lost and found myself to reap my sweet reward.These are nothing fancy, but they get the message across.There are blanks for the child’s name and birth date, so that you can work them up in advance, and pass them out as the child’s birthday approaches.(This way, if they’re not in attendance one week, you can save it and easily remember for whom it was intended the next time they’re in Primary.) I’ve made them small (and gender neutral), to help keep them cost effective if you choose to print in color.If you’d like to use them in your own Primary, please help yourself!No matter what we have been through, where we think we will go, God loves us all the same.
