The perposal part two. 

Lilly could not beleve all that just happened.one minute she was getting out bed. Then she went for a walk.then she was maried and all her way to her honey moon. It was very sureel. She was happy with her decison. It felt crazy but she was content even excited by the future.

“We are off!”he said in an exciting tone.”cool!”she said. “I have a thousand questions! “Alex told her.”i have a thousand for you.”she answered.”i want to know everything there is to know about you?” he commented. “I want to kbow rverywthing there is to kbow about you. We have the time.”she said. 

“Look. I am sory i did not wait for you.i suspected my former fiancée was not the one but i tried to push it. I was afraid to be alone.”he said.”you could not have known. I apteciate the sentiment i really do. I have not dated in a while. I am a bit of a workaholic. I wanted to be maried. I figured i would get around to it eventually. “She said. They both laughed. 

“You have not dated in a while?” alex asked. “I think the last time was in colege. Between church and civic events i am really buisy.  It would be difficult to date a parishioner.  The only male under forty is a bit odd. I dont want to date anyone that i know ib my civic work because they are unsaved.  It was not a prority. I wanted to be maried but i did not see an urgentcy. Perhaps i figured it would sort itself out. It has. I just did not think it will work itself out in this manor. ” she told him.

“Did you grow up hear?” he asked.”no i grew in pensivania. I went to a seminary not far hear. I was sent to pastor hear. I was glad it was close. I have become rather attached to this area. I was pleased to be assigned hear.i like this town. I love the church and the people. Did you grow up hear? “She asked.

“I did. I grew up in nearby deen. I went to bible colege in Connecticut then came back hear.  I am attending the same church i attended as a kid. I have wanted to be in full time ministry sense i was young. Did you want to be a pastor at a young age?”he asked. 

“Hardly. I grew up in a strict independent fundamental baptist church. I wanted nothing to do with it. I went to colege first as a english major.  One of the teacher was a Methodist minister as well. I went to her church. She took me under her wing.  She encouged me to persue the ministry.  The rest i gues is history. “She said. 

” i see.” he said.  “My patents were a bit detresed that i was training to be a minister and that i was attending a united Methodist church. They were glad i was involved in the church. I never really stoped believing. I was stuborn. I was rebelous. I have finaly put away those childish things.took a while.  My parents say they dont totaly agree with my decison but they see a change in me. We have become a lot closer. ” she said.

“Even if you agree on everything, it is not always easy between parents and children. ” he said. “Are you and your parents close?” she asked. “We are. We are very sinilar in beliefs and how we do things. Sometimes thibga just seam off. It might just be me. My siblings seem closer. Maybe everyone feel that way ” he said. 

She saw a deference in him as he spoke of his relationship with his family.  She came to realize that he felt isolated from his family. She never quite understood it or why or how the chasism came to be. She waa determined to make him always feel like he mattered to her. She wanted him to know he was her family. He was invalible to her. The sadness in his eyes afected her.she never wanted him to feel that way in this new family.  She wanted him to never question his significance with  her. 

“So did you parents help him you though the aftermath of your stabing?”he asked. “They were great. I could not have goten though it without them. I gues i should tell you the story. “She said.

“If you dont want to ,its ok.” he said. “No its fine. A guy who was drunk was trying to attack his x girlfriend. He got the wrong house.  Lukily my neighbor heard ne screming. He was a vet. He schot the man and probably saved my life. I was pro gun control. Not so much now. It was a hard recovery.  The physical and emotional scars renain” she said. He squeezed her hand. 

“Were you a good student?” he asked. “4.0” she said. “I was not a particuly good student in high school. Ay bible colege i was an A, b student.never got a single c. My school is probably not as hard as you went. I had to work hard but i was pleased.  “He told her. 

“You seem like a very ibteligent person. “She said.  “Thank you thats meens alot. I like to learn.  ” he said. “That is evident. ” she answered.  

“So where is that third tatoo?”he asked.she chuckled. “Your stil on that? It is on my thigh. It is a dolphin.  I like dolphin.  I have a stufed dolphin i had as a kid.yes i packed it. “She said.

She showed him one of one shoulder. It was winie the poo.the other was in greek. “I love theology?”he said. “You read greek?”she asked. “A little. I took biblical greek in bible colege. Your a thology nerd?” he asked. She chuckled.”a little! I know about the old testament baning of tatoos.” she said. “I was not going to bring it up” he assured her. ” it was a bit of a contradiction i gues. I dont tell a lot of people i have it. I put it there so i could conceil it. ” she said.  “Your something else! ” he said lauthing.

She loved the way he looked at her. She feared that that would change. Hia fascination with her would abait.he would lose that wounder. Onw day she would become mundane to him. She accepted the fact that it would.  It never did. She took notice of that. She was thankfull for that.

After a time they had made it from new hanpshire to Massachusetts.  Then they made it into new york. “Are you ready to stop for something to eat?”he asked. “Yea i am getting kind of hunger!”she answered. “Great!”he said.

They stoped at a resturant off the interstate.  He parked. His phone went off. “Its my mom,i should probably take this!”he told her. “Go for it!”she said. He presed the button. “Hi mom!”he said.

“Dad and i stoped by your house but you were not there. “She said. “I decided to go to Ohio any ways. I am in new york right now.”he said. She smirked but tried to stay silent.. She was enjoying seing him swet. 

“You ok?we are woried about you. “She said. “I am fine mom. “He tried to assure her. “Ok.drige carefully. Drink plenty of cofee. Take break if you need to. No land speed records.”she said. “Driking cofee has never been a problem for me. I will. Be carefull. “He said. She said her i love you. He echoed it. He hung up.

She smirked. “Seing you skirm is prety cute. “She said. “She is concerned. I am her oldest. “He said.”dont do anything rash like mary a complete stranger. “She said. “Yo have never been a stranger. ” he told her. She kissed him. 

They excited the car and went to the resturant. She felt pain.from time to time she experienced pain. The doctor said it would continue. “You ok hunnie?”he asked. “Im fine.just mild discomfort.i have grown used to it.”she said. 

He huggee her. “You don have to be strong. Not around me. You out up a brave front. No fear. I do it too. I understand.its ok. I have got you”he said. She embraced him. Her last boyfriend resented that she had no interest in physical contact. She recisted him at every turn.  With alex she found she craved afection. After a while she was ok. 

“So is there a pool at the hotel?”he asked.”yes.”he said.  He was skidish about the answer. “You dont like swiming?”she asked.”i akmost drowned when i was seven. Ever sence then i have been very skidish about it.”he said.”im sory. We. Can stay towards the shalow end. Please swim with me.”she pleaded.”alright. I will give it a chance.”he said. “We can get get though it together. “She said. 

“It was my fault.  I lost a trinket,a neclace i made in sunday school. I got above my head. I could not get out . i was rescued.  It left an lasting fear.” he said. “Understandible. We can face this fear together. “She said. “Ok!”he said.

“So what is around where we will be?”she said. “There is the bigest ball of yarn excibit 20 minutes from the hotel. “He said.”no! You planed on seing a ball of yarn on your honey moon?”she asked. “”We can skip it if you like?”he asked. “Oh no.i have to see this.i will get our picture taken with it. “She said.”i was just curious. It may not have been the finest decision. “He said.”i am excited to see it. I am going to tease you about it insesently but i am excited about it.”she said.

“There is plenty of tourest stuf around hear. More interesting then the ball of yarn. “He said. “I an sure it will be fine. ” she said.”if you have ideas oftging you want to do or see,tell me. I kindw had this planed out. I want this to he something you wi both enjoy and cherish.  “He told her. 

“I know it will be. “She said. This was already something she would always tresue. It was almost magical.  She was astonished by it. 

The meal was great. “Do you want desert?”he asked.”i don want to blow the budget! “She said. He showed her his first meal budet on his phone.”we are good.”he said “i an impresed and terified all at the same time. ” he said.they decided to have chese cake.she thanked him. He paid then they left. 

They stopped at a gass station. “Hey i go this!”she said.”i budgited gass mony!”he said.”i an sure you did. There is no such tging as myine and yours.its ours. I got this.”she said.”please me thats a debit card!”he said.”yes i dont believe in credit cards! “She said.”few!” he said. She paid for the gass at the pump. “You are really cute. Odd but cute!”she said.”thank you,i think! “He said.

“Hey can i drive for a bit?”she asked. ,of course! “He said as he gave her the keys.”can i put the radio on?after several hours of the same hym cd i am ready for something different! “She said. “Oh ok!” he said 

She found a station that played contemporary christian music.she sang along. “Your not a fan of ccm are you?” she asked.  “No im not. I perfer the old hymms. “He said. “Are you strict?”she asked.

“Some would see some are my stances as strict i supose. I try to base my views on biblical principles. I believe the bible is the word of God.where the bible is rigid i have to be. Its how you go about it. I try to hold the truth in love. I try to be happy about it. On music i will try to keep an open mind. Where on bible versons i have to hold to king james.on salvation i have to hold to salvation by grace though faith alone. On other things i dont have to be as rigid on. ” he said 

“I do believe in salvation by grace though faith alone. I believe jesus is the only way to salvation. ” she declared. “I was prety sure you did. ” he said. 

“I do enjoy klove and the music on it.i would like to continue to listen to it.” she said. “We will work on this. I think that we can work this out. It will require some ajustment on both of us. We will make it work. ” he said.”i know we will. ” she said. 

They switched off driving. Eventualy they arived at the hotel. They went inside to check in. 

To be continued. 

Words of faith part three

Brad and elizebeth parents had aranged for them to be maried. They had got off to a rocky start.could they made it work?

They fell asleep on Saturday night. Brad woke up. He found that he was beyond the point of falling back to sleep. He tried to get out of bed without waking her up. It failed.

“Hey! Where are you going?” she asked. “I was going to go for a walk. I used to go hear often in vacation as a kid. I gues i want to relive my childhood a bit. “He told her.

“Can i come with you?”she asked. ” of course. “He said.they got up. They got dressed. He beleved that ladies should wear skirts or dresses.she rarely wore dresses ir skirt.she brought one dress.she wore a green t shirt and jeens and flip flops. 

They started to walk outside the cabin. Neither one was sure was sure who took whose hand.they both looked at eachother. They smiled.  

” so you used to come hear as a child”she asked.  “I am prety sure i came hear while i was still in the womb.  It was a favorate place of everyone in my family.”he said.

“It is a beautiful spot.”she said ” it really is. Do you like going in a canoe? “He asked. “I love going out in the  watter. “She said.”want to rent a canoe tomorrow?  He asked. “Sounds great.”she said.

“I though we could play paint ball as well.  “He said. She chuckled.” i get to schoot you with paint?”she asked. “Well you have to get to me first. My evasive tactics are legendary.  ” he said. “We will see about that. “She said. He laughed. ” oh ok!”he said.

“I figured today would be a low key day.  With church in the morning and night i figured that we not do too much.”he said. 

“Yea thats fine.  I assume that we are going to a baptist church?”she asked. “There is a Baptist church not to far from hear. Yes it is independent fundamental Baptist.  “He said. “I assumed as much.”she said.

They walked back to the cabin. “I figured that we would have a light breakfast. Toast and cofee. Tomorrow we can have a bigger breakfast. “He said. “Yea thats fine i understand that we are on a bit of a tight schedule. “She said. “I promise that today will not be indicative of the rest of the week. I do want this to be relaxing week. “He said 

“You dont have a clipboard with a idomized itinerary of what we are doing?”she asked in a playfull tone.”no i dont have a clipboard. Please dont look in the blue bag.no i dobt have a clio bored!”he answered.  She laughed.

” you probably think i am extremly dul!” he said. ” it is not a deal breaker.  “She reaplied. ” ok. ” he said. They both laughed. 

He made the cofee. She made toast. They got ready for church. She put on the only dress she packed with her. It was a black dress with pink and white flowers on it. He wore a suit . 

He took her hand.  They walked to the car. The church was a about 15 minutes away from the campground. The church was a newer church. It had only been around for 15 years. The car parked in the parking lot. 

They walked to the church. “Hello brad. Come without your family? “A man in his thirties asked. “I am my honey moon.”brad said.  “Oh wow.congratulations.  this must be your bride?” he asked. “It is.this is my wife libby elzebeth. “He said. “Im jim noris it is good to meat you”he said. 

They talked to several of the church members before they went to there seats. Some he remembered was from earlier visits,others were new to him.

Libby was laughing. “What?”he asked. “You! You know how many times you introduced me as libby then changed it to elizebeth.  ” she said. 

“I kinda gave you that name. I dont know. You could hate it. “He said. “I like that you came up with a pet naime for me. Its fine. I like it. You can introduce me as libby. ” she said. “Ok!” he said.

“You do know your really silly.  ” she told her.  “Oh ok ” he said. They both laughed. .

The church was not quite what she was used to. Her church had a worship team with a band.they used power point. The church had high tech equipment.  This church did not. They used a piano and organ. The church sang from hymbooks. They did record the messages. She was not use to it. 

She perfered newer music not the old hyims. She found the music time a bit boring. It was quick. The preaching was prety good. 

Afterward they went back to the cabin. He helped her make lunch.  “What did you think of church? “He asked.  “Interesting.  A bit different.  “She said. “I suspected it was. ” he said. “I gues i will have to adjust.  ” she said. ” i know it will be an adjustment.  ” he said. 

They had steak potatoes and vegetables for lunch.after the meal,they decided to take a nap.  

“Your not ashamed of me?” she asked. “No not at all. “He said. “I dont embarrass you?”she asked. “No you dont.do i embariss you?”he asked. “No you are a bit uptight!  “She said. “Me upright no not me! He said. She laughed. He huged her.  She held on to him. 

They went to the same church they did in the morning.  She got used to it a little more. After church they went to the cabin. They roasted marshmellows.

“Ok what are you doing?”she asked.”roasting marshmallow! “He said “you do know your marshmellows is on fire?”she asked.”i love my marshmellows burnt to a crisp. ” he said. “Are you going to put that in a smore?”she asked.  “Of course.  Smores with charred marshmellows are the best.” he said. “I will take your word for it. ” she told her. 

After the marshmellows were roasted, she got out her guitar. “You play the guitar?” he asked. “I do. “She said.

She staetted playing a song he bad never heard before.  She played a song called “mighty to save. “He liked her signing voice.  She had a soft sothing vioce.he found himself transfixed. 

“Your realy a good singer. “He told her. “Thank you.”she said. She played several ccm songs.then she played a cover of street with no naime. Then she played the theme from star trek. “You would know that one! ” he said. “Yes i would.  ” she said. 

“Do you know any hyms?”he asked.she played “i come to the garden alone.  ” he liked just sitting with her. He was quite taken witb her. She caught him smiling. She smiled back. 

They then got ready for bed. “I had a good day today.  ” she told him.”i did too. ” he said.then they went to sleep.  

End of part three. 

Words of faith part two

The two checked into the cabin.they started to bring in there bags. They had not really spoken to each other for a while. They really did not have anything to say. After they finished bringing stuff In.she went to the  bathroom. She locked the door. She just sat and thought for a little bit. She had no idea what to do. She wondered why her Perents would set her up with this man. What they thinking ? Was this kind of a joke. Would she get a call or a text saying just kidding. Of course she did not. She did not know what to do. How could this possibly work out? 

He was upset at first. He was a bit angery with her. Then he realized that he was in the wrong. He had been harsh and self absorbed. As he began to have a pity party ,he felt the holy Spirit lovingly rebuke him. It was as if he was being told he was saying to him,I have given her to you. Why are you rejecting her. You have not even given her a chance. He felt rally bad. He decided to humble himself. He recommitted himself to her. He wanted to see her. He wanted to go to her.he figures he should give her a few minutes. Let he sort all this out. He has really been a yutzah. He knew it.he wanted to make it right even though he really did not know how. 

She was so confused. She had no idea what to do. She cried. She struggled to regain her composure. She ended up being in the bathroom for an hour.finaky she came out. “Libby hunnie are you OK?”he asked.”yea I think so!”she said. 

“I was afraid you jumped out the window!”he said.”to be honest the thought had accured to me!”she said. “I am glad you did not.”he said.”really?”she said.”yes. We did not really get off to a great start did we?”he remarked.”no we did not!”she answered. “Your not upset with me?”she asked.”no not all all. Come hear!”he said.

He put his arms around her. They hugged. He held her as tight as he could. They went to a couch.she sat next to him.he out her arms around her.she rested her head on his shoulders.”do you think we can make this work?”she asked.”I would like to try.”he said.”I would too”she said.

They say in silence for a while. Nether one said anything. They just held each other. They both tried to calm down for a bit. ” I guess I a! Not what you expected?”she said.”no but I suppose I am not what you expected either!”he answered.”to be honest not really.no offense !”she said.he chuckled.”none taken.!”he said.

“Are you strict?”she asked.”depends on who you ask. Some see independent fundimental Baptist as very strict. Some see me personally as strict.i guess I hold some view that could be interpreted as strict even by I.f.b standards. I take holiness serious. I hope that my strictness is not out of mallice.i want to speak the truth in love. That is not always easy. It should be but it is not always I’m afraid.”he said. 

” I am new all this. Can you patient with me?”she pleaded with him.”absolutely!”he said.he patted her back. “I have heard that your brand of Baptist don’t like my church !”she commented. “Well I disagree with the view that if your not materialy or physically prosperous,your not right with God. That view is contrary to scripture.”he said.

“God does what Christians to be prosperous.”she said.”yes but how do you define prosperous? Prosperity is doing what God wants you to do. Our best life is later not now. Someday we will be with the Lord. We will have a mansion just over the hilltop but that is not for now. Later we have the sweet bye and bye but now we have to deal with the nasty now and now.”he said. 

“When Jesus died on the cross he went to hell and got the keys.he overcame the power of death and hell. This includes sickness and wealth. He had power over it and so do we.”she said.”I don’t believe Jesus went to. Hell to get the keys. I am familiar with that view but I don’t agree with it.setting that aside,Jesus made it clear that his kingdom is not of this world. While the kindgom excist in a mystery form it will not be set up on earth until after the tribulation. I believe that although death is defeated,oh death where is thy sting,the full effect will not be felt until the milenial kingdom.”he said. 

He realized he went into lecture mode a lot. This was his wife not a debate opponent.He felt like he was patronizing. That was not what he wanted to do. “What is the banefit of a believer now? If your right it all future?”she remarked.”not quite.as a Christian we are looking forward to the blessed hope. There is much to be hopefully for. Right now we have the promise of the presence of the holy sprit. We have the help we need to live daily for the Lord. We have his presence ,his encouragement. Health wealth and wisdom could be a hunderence to our walk with the Lord. Paul asked three times for the thorn in the flesh to be taken away. The Lord told him my grace is sufficient. Some people,God does give health and wealth and they use it for the Lord. There is no formula . He does what is best. I don’t like the enthises on material wealth and physical health over sprituel prosperity”he said. 

“So what are your expectations for me?”she asked.”well I figured your would be I.f.b. my expectations are I want a partner a helper,encoreger. Being a pastor there is a detachment between myself and those I’m thinking congregation. While I am not sure that is bibilical ,it happeneds. I get lonely.it would be nice to have someone to talk to.” He told her. 

She learned early on that whenever she asked a question,she would get a story.at first she was taken a back. Later she got used to it.shecame to expect it even found it to be a bit endering. Rather he intended to or not,he had really opened up. 

“I can see that.i am a good listener not quite an elorien but I will do.”she said.”a what?”he asked. “Never mind.”she said.”what are your expectations for me?”he asked. “Please be patient with me. I am all new to this. I can be v verry sensitive. Please keep that in mind. That did not come out quite as I wanted it to !”he said.”no I understand. I will try to be sensitive.i am glad you told me that. “He said.

She noticed he seemed to genuinely care about her. She could see compassion in him. ” You are?”she asked. “I want to respond to your needs.” He said. Your not a Klingon?” She remarked. “A what??” He asked. ” Never mind! “She said.

“I have a feeling that we have almost nothing in common!”she commented. “It’s possible.”he said. “If there is to be a brave new world our generation will have the hardest time Living in it. We will have to work on that I guess. “She said.”yes we will.,”he said.

“What are your interest?”she asked.”church history. theology. History.i like snowmobiling. I like playing sports not really good at it but enjoy it. I like hyims as you know. I enjoyed joy himnology. I like airplanes.you? “He asked. 

I like to read . I like fiction and nonfiction fiction. I read books by word of Faith writers. I like reading and writing poetry. I like contemporary Christian music. I like Star trek and sci Fi.i play the guter. I play the piano but prefer the guter. I like playing volleyball ball. ” She said. 

“We do both like sports and to read. We just read different thing.”he said.”I noticed. Like you said we will work at it.” She said. After a while they decided to call it a night. They had stayed up pretty late. They turned off the lights. They said goodnight. 

End of part two. 

Words of faith 

What if the one person who would change your life was the last person you ever expected. What if the love of your life could not be more different. They say birds of a feather flock together . It has also been said that opposite attracts? Could one fall in love with a total opposite? Could you create a life with that person. Could you spend the rest of your life with the person.coukd you be happy? Does it just happen? Is love a choice or does one get zap with the love virus and then they get married and live happily ever after. 

 These are questions that are not easily answered. These are things that are heavily debated. Everyone had different opinions and conclusions on this topic. 

What about aranged mariege. There was a time when mariege were aranged.many times by Perents. Hear is a story of aranged mariege. A story of a buy and a girl brought together by  there Perents. 

Elizabeth was spending time In her Perents garden.she likedto garden. She always had. She wore a blue t shirt and jeans and was barefoot. Her sister came out. “Liz mom and dad want to talk to you. ” Her sister said. She opened the outside door.she walked to the living room. “Hi Lizzy please sit down.”her farther said.

She knew  some thing was up. She had no idea what.she sat down. ” As you know our family believs strongly in the idea  of aranged marriage. “Her mom asked. Yes I do!”she said.she had no idea what they were getting at.Asshe considered it ,it started to come to her. She began to see that she was going on. They had found a husband for her. 

“You see we have found a husband for you. The Perents of a young man has agreed to slow there son to marry you. ” Her mom said. Elizabeth had no idea what she thought of this. As a child she was told that her mate would be chosen  by her Perents. She had accepted it.there was no time table . It was unclear when it would happen.there was always the chance that they would be unable to find a husband. They might not be able to convince the Perents to agree to that. Now they found someone and they have agreed.

Arrangements for the wedding began at once. She was not sure what to think about all of this .She  wanted to give it a chance. She thought that it could be a really good thing. She was close to her Perents.she trusted them. She believed that they had her best interest at heart. She was certain of that. She hoped that they had made a good decision. 

She was told little about her husband to be. She was told that he was a pastor of a church. He was in his mid twenties. She was told that his name was Brad. That was a out it. Her Perents Wanted to her have little Information. That way she could get to know him naturally.

Elizabeth’s family were Christians. They were part of a group that was a little out of the mainstream of Protestant Christianity. . They were part of a branch of penticoastasm called word of faith. It has also been called prosperity gospel. this group has been made popular by Kenneth Hagen,Benny hyin and others. The mane view is that God wants his poeple to be healthy wealthy and wise. If you are not healthy wealthy and wise that you be must be signing. Your sprituel life is based on how prosperous you are. This was not an organized sub denomation.many churches might apply to this group. They went to a church that believed in that view point. 

She was nervous. She was excited too. She did not spend a lot of time thinking about her weeding or mariege,she did not think about it. Now it was not acedemic she was really going to get married. She went to the church and got dressed I. Her weeding dress. It was time. She began to walk to the auditorium. 

She walk down the isle. She saw the man.he had a well groomed beard. He had short brown hair. He was 5.9. she found him to be handsome. She was pleased with his appearance.she did not care a lot about appearance but was happy that he was good looking. It did not really matter but was a plus. She tried to see if she could grasp what he was thinking.she could not. She wished that she was telipathic at least when it came to him. She did not want to read the minds of everyone but wanted to read his mind. That was not possible. 

She smiled at him. He smiled back. He had a warm smile. She was looking forward to actually being able to talk to him. She wanted to be able to interact with them.she wanted to get to know him. She wanted to know who he was. Right now she really did not have a clue who this person was. She wanted to . When she came over to him she offered his hand. He took it. He had warms hands. She squeezed his hand . He squeezed it back.

They went though the vows. At the end the minister pronounced them husband and wife. She Leened In  For the kiss. He kissed her. She found that he was a good kisser. Then the ceremonial part of the wedding was concluded. A reception was to follow the wedding proceeding. He took her hand.

“Hi there. It’s good to finally meet you. I have a voice and face to the name. “She said. ” I know what you mean ! I wondered what you look like. You are very pretty !” He said. He realized that might have been a silly thing to say. She smiled.”thank you. Your quite handsome yourself.”she said. “Thank you!”he said. “It is this to finally meet you!”she said.”I know what you mean. I have so much to tell you. I also have a lot of questions. We will get to  that in due course !” He said. “I know what you mean ! I feel the same way . I have much to tell you. I have a lot of questions.”she said.

Both wanted to be alone together. They wanted to get to know each other. They owed to there family to attend the reception. They would adhere to protocol. They went to the reception area. They would look at each other.she imagined what her life with him would be like. She was not able to get a sense of who he was. He like wise had trouble getting a sense of who she was. It did not feel real yet. After quite a while they said there good byes and were off.they got into the car. 

“Hey you?”she said.”hi Libby hunie I am glad that we can have some alone time.” He said.”  Me too ! Where are we headed?” She asked.”I got a cabin for us. We can do some boating. There is a mini golf course. There is a paint ball place.”he said.”paint ball ooh. I like paint ball. I tend to get carried away.”she said.”duley noted.please don’t go too hard on me!”he said.”no promises but I will try!” She said. They laughed. 

” Do you have any pics of the house?” She asked.”I do.it is a bit modest. ” He said.”is there room for a garden?”she asked.”absolutely! ” He said.”good! I am glad to hear that. “She said. He had old hyms on. She was not a big fan of it.they stoked for gas.”can I take the wheel?”he asked.”sure!”he said. She went Into the driver’s seat. She changed the radio station. She put on a contemporary Christian music station. He was very uncomfortable with the music but did not say anything. 

” So my Perents said you are a pastor?” She asked.”yes I am?” He said.” What kind of church?” She asked.”Baptist why?”he asked.”just curious. ” She said. She never thought that he would be a Baptist minister.She suspected that he was form a traditional Baptist Church. King James Bible,women ware dresses,they sing form hyimbooks and piano and the pastor’s and church members are poor. 

He figured that she would be an independent fundimental Baptist. “What kind of church do you attend?”he asked.” Gadson Christian community Church.” She said.” Oh! ” He said. Gadson was a mega church that believed in a prosperity gospel. The pastor had been a football player who was hired by a religious broadcast comping and decided to start a church. He was well known.For his prosperity gospel and close ties to Todd bentley,Benny him and others linked to property gospel. 

“I was not aware of that. “He said. They both went really quiet. They did not say anything for quite a while. He took the wheel as they got closer. He put a sacred Christian station on. They drove to the cabin..They checked into the room.he did carry her over the threshold but it was not like he planed. She went into the bathroom. She stayed there for a while. Both had no idea what to do. 

End of part one.
