Hey guys, so as y'all know last night I was in the mood for something, and someone different. It was hilarious I tell you! But people don't listen now, do they? Everyone that contacted me, save one, are people I already know. What? Did y'all think I was joking when I said what I said? Anyhoooooo to be honest the thought of getting dressed and glammed to go hang out with someone I've never met seemed a bit much, but I'm hoping we'll be friends and maybe some weekend we could do drinks...
So among the 'contacters' from last night was an ex. Interesting night, last night. Here's what happened; I was all dressed up to go have a drink or two with said ex when another friend hola'd and reminded me that HOTR had night vigil last night. My people, that's how I ditched the makeup and short dress and put on jeans, a tee shirt, a cardigan and a shawl, and hit the church! Hehehehehe. Yeah, that's where I turned up last night.
As you might have figured by now I didn't go alone. (Totally unrelated, but 30(s) is turning out to be much more exciting than the 20s. Who woulda thunk it!?). When we parked the car, my companion made a comment premised on an observation he made on the walk from the car park to the door. He also attends HOTR occasionally so he's words were quite founded. He said to me, "did you notice how almost all these cars here tonight are very ordinary?". "Ordinary how?" I asked. "Compare the cars you're seeing here now to the usual cars you see in this church on Sundays". I looked around and I could see his point. He continued; "it's funny, on Sundays you'll see mainly G-Wagons, Range Rovers, LRs and other luxury cars. This night we're seeing only saloon cars, and most of them old or beat up, at that". I looked around, he was right. I mean there were a few "nice" cars but otherwise, this was not the normal HOTR car park look.
"So why aren't those ones in church tonight? Because they have money, and all the things that they need and can't be bothered with the stress of coming for night vigil? And the ones who came for vigil are the ones who obviously really NEED help from God, the ones that are hustling?...." He seemed really keen on this; where were the owners of the multi-million rides? Why did it seem like the saloon owners were the only one present at vigil?
Why do you think this is?
Makes me wonder; if you didn't really need God, would you still love Him the way you do? (And no, I'm not suggesting that our needs are solely financial).
I wrote this yesterday, last night refers to Friday night.
Have a beautiful Sunday guys, it's the last one of the Month.
