Ever since my accident I have been similar to a young child. Just like a young child they are open to everything around them. As they experience new things they take the whole experience in. I have been just like that.
Let me explain where I am going with this. A couple of days ago I was waiting for the bus and this woman was waiting for the bus as well. It was only a couple of seconds before she started talking to me about her and her life. And, let me tell you her life was very scary. She proceeds to tell me about her drug use, sex life, and boyfriends. I won’t get into the details. She then admitted to me that her choice of lifestyle was a reaction to her lack of self confidence. She didn’t like herself, as she said. Then on Sunday, I was waiting for the bus again and a woman with here family was waiting for the bus. She, again, began to tell me her life story. She was a woman that had a family that was active in her church. Of course, she inquired about me and my chair. I explain to her about what happened and what I was doing now. Before I know I was in a conversation about religion and “God” and getting invited to visit her church.
The reason I am telling you these stories is because I am a man at a crossroads. The two women represent possible lifestyle choice that I can make. I can either live a life of “sin” or I can live the life of “God”. I will admit that these two lifestyles are on the opposite ends of the spectrum and neither one has any attraction for me. These two interactions captured my attention because I need to be careful not to follow those paths. I am probably reading too much into these interactions, but I will always remember them as something not for me.
This is going to a be a short post today. Come back tomorrow for some good pictures and stories.
