FORGIVENESS

I gave the CLUB talk today at Young Life. I told the story of the Prodigal son. It was a really good experience for me. I was not nervous, I was excited to tell then what I had been thinking about/had on my heart. It was such a totally good thing. I got to use an awesome video clip from Blood Diamond, to kind of use as a visual to represent our relationship with God. How, God forgives us, but only when there is a relationship with him. ~CLICK ME~ to see the video.

After CLUB, I took some kids home, and then took one guy (Ian) back to my house to pick up a paper that I have been promising to give to him for a long time, but always keep forgetting to do so. We had some great conversation in the car.

Then I went to school. I went to the 24/7 computer lab. It was late when I got there, and even later when I left.On the drive home, it was probably 11:30PM-12:00AM, and I pulled up to a 3-way stop. The car was not moving. . . . . I waited for maybe a minute, and then rolled down my window and wistled at him (my horn does not work). Still, nothing. So, as I get ready to pull up next to him to see what was going on, he pulls away. I knew right away what was going on, HE WAS DRUNK!! He (I am just assuming it was a male, it could have been a female, I did not see the driver) was all over the road. Swerving into the grass, then back to the middle. Drunk as a skunk if I had ever seen a drunk driver. So, I did the right thing and called 911 and reported a drunk driver. I followed him for a long time, and kept reporting exactly where he was. Finally, when he turned around to drive back into the city, the lady on the phone directed me to stop following him. I hope the cops found him and arrested him. Not so I can feel like I did something, but because that is so extremely dangerous, it just makes me sick.

I'm SO glad your talk went well, I was praying that it would and I hear you on your last bit about drunk driver. That makes me sick too, hopefully they caught him as well.
