Hey guys! I hope you had a beautiful day. Mine was fine, only made better by the mid-week service. Pastor Paul Adefarasin was absent today and he junior pastor stood in for him but boy, was he awesome! Nothing beats being able to laugh while learning and hearing God's word.
And yes, I have a testimony!!!
So right in the row before me was one of my classmates from QC, Yeside. When I saw her I wasn't quite sure she was the one as I've not seen her since 2002 and the person I saw looked a bit different, naturally. But just as if she felt my eyes on her she turned back and the second she saw me she broke into a huge grin and waved excitedly. And that's my testimony; that twelve years later, with all the aging and weight gain someone from the past saw me and IMMEDIATELY recognized me. WOW! Y'all don't know how excited this makes me feel. Even I look at my old pictures and I cannot reconcile who I see in them with who I see in the mirror now. So Yay!
Anyhoooo, service ended and I thought I should go and get something to eat before heading home and the only place I was certain to get food from without having to wait too long was The Place. There was a queue but thankfully it wasn't too long. The place was crowded and the people around me were a bit too noisy and I just couldn't wait to get out of there so when I saw my friend Chuks with his female cousin I was more than grateful for a distraction. I screamed excitedly and rushed to give him a hug. On getting to him he nervously took a step back, and it was then I looked closer and realized that... I really need to stop taking my glasses off. He turned out to not be Chuks and "his female cousin" turned out to not be so pleased by my familiarity. I don't know which burnt more, the horror and confusion on their faces as they quickly moved back like I was going to the devour them, or having to face that crowd again after that public embarrassment.
Guys, this was SO so so embarassing! I quickly apologized and exited the door behind them, waited several minutes and went back in the join the queue again.
Well, just like other embarrassing moments, time heals all wounds, right? Yet there are those embarassing moments that we can never live down no matter how much time has gone by. We think about it and even though it happened five or ten years ago we still cringe and ask the ground to swallow us.
What your worst Oops! moment?
(Hey it's midnight... LOL. Good night guys!)
