Ms. Wanda

So… I was hanging out in the study section at LifeWay and a quiet voice asked me if I needed help. That voice belonged to Ms. Wanda. She came by before, but I was on the phone with my cousin (Hi Dez😜). I explained what I was researching and some kind of way…I started talking about the things I do. Well.. That caused her to laugh. A few more sentences in, I mentioned SUPERDad and Brown Twin’s adventures in the hospital. (That would be my mom and dad by the way…) Well somewhere between Thursday, March 26 and Thursday, May 7 Ms. Wanda began to cry. You see… A long time ago, her father passed. I asked her for a hug, on my way to giving her one. Doesn’t matter if it happened 2 days ago or 20 years ago… We live through the moments. 
She kept complimenting me about being sweet and looking forward to my next visit…while I was thanking God for this experience. You see, I had other plans for the evening. I got dressed to attend a poetry event, but didn’t make it LifeWay on Tuesday as previously planned. I believe this evening’s steps were ordered. I so delighted in my conversation with this lady, who was just as sweet as she could be. Turns out, she was the assistant manager and we were 8 minutes past closing! I know we talked at least twenty minutes. I rushed myself out, but decided I had to share. This is what life is about! Love God and love God’s people. The latter is HARD sometimes, but not as it pertains to Ms. Wanda. Will you sprinkle her into your prayers tonight? Let’s ask God to bless her! She was sooooo lovely. I pray that one day I am lovely to someone like that. The ear and kind response was like water to a parched throat, an oasis!  Loving forward.
