Yes. Best weekend to date. I think the birth of my first child will probably be the only thing to posibly vie for this position. Some of you know that the LDYR (Labor Day Youth Rally) is a yearly tradition of mine. So what could make this one so much better than the others. Well … basically it all came down to about 5 min worth of actual effort a little before midnight. Because about 11:20 or so I baptiezed my lovely girlfiend Elaine.
Yes, I baptiezed her. I was so excited and nervous, we had over 100 other people watching us, that my friends on the side had to feed me the lines, which is moderately embarassing but since this is the first one I’ve ever done I guess it’s not too bad. Elaine has some coverage and a picture on her blog. This is an espeically big moment for myself because it represents a fundamental shift in our relationship. It’s a good thing, a very good thing. For I have to admit that I have been scared of gettin too close to her … for fear that our religious differnences would drive us apart. Also I know that the ‘date to convert’ dynamic is flawed at best. But, praise God, He’s smarter than I am and far wiser. He knew what he was doing and He knew why he was doing it. Now I sit here … still barely able to contain my excitement.
Probably the next biggest benefit after gaining a new sister in Christ is that I now have no fear about letting her deeply into my life. I miss her more now that I was able to during our first year. Not that I didn’t miss her … but now … if we separate at all it’s like cutting out part of my heart. I know … I know, “Ack! Gag me with a spoon. This is far to sacrin for my blood.” But it’s true. It feels like part of me becomes dull and hollow when she’s gone. Like right now … which is probably why I’m more gushy than I normally may be. I begin to understand Tom Cruise’s elation. I think I have him beat though. I get to celebrate long after the stars fall from the sky. I will be able to spend eternity chatting with her, loving her and generally being a friend, which is too wonderful for words. Ha! Top that Mr. Cruise! Am I an eliteist … thinking I’m gonna go to Heaven with her … yeah probably. But God says that it is His plan and wish that we are there so … I’ll hold on to that thankyouverymuch.
Now … I find myself remembering verses and random bits of biblical scholerly information. I know for a fact that I am not this smart so I can only guess that it is God giving me these words for her, and myself. This week following Labor Day has been one of the most amazing ever. Every moment I have with Elanie is better and more beautiful that I could have ever imagined. if anything her kisses are even better. ^____^ ::drool:: Kisses … … Ahem. Sorry. She is always on my mind and I can feel her now deeply in my heart. I am the most blessed dude on the planet! Well …yeah why not! I am! w00t!
I guess I’ll stop there I could go on … and I probably will in the furture. But that’s all for now. Take Care all. God bless.
