You should have seen me. I about skipped to the checkout counter, holding my prize to my chest. I was so happy that I found them that I rewarded myself with some peach rings. (peach rings were not the prize.) I had finally found them. Things that everyone said were everywhere were nowhere. They were not at Walmart, they were not at Longs. They were not at Walgreens, they were not at Big 5. They were not at any supermarkets. They were not at the DollarTree as everyone swore that they were. I found them in the Pharmacy. I found them, told Jesus how much I loved him and grabbed the last two off the shelf.
The weight had been lifted from my heart and the stress was relaxed from my forehead. I felt as I could walk on air. I didn’t have to think of the alternitives, last minute things that would work, but aren’t what I really want. Guns could get confusing, and I was afraid pretending wouldn’t cut it for anyone else. Or me for that matter. But that wasn’t a fear anymore, for I had found them.
Thank you Jesus.
