Great lines:

I dont know what it is, but theres something about you thats different, something special. I want what you have, she stated.

I didnt understand at first what I could possibly have that she would want. Then I felt this deep and urgent need to share Christ with her. My heart was hurting so badly I didnt understand how she could see Him in me, but I knew I had to tell her about Him.

She went into the shower while they finished getting me ready for surgery. I had to pack up everything, because I wouldnt be returning to the mental ward afterwards. I was ready to be rolled up stairs when she came out.

Wait, stop for just a moment, please. I just prayed. I asked your God to come into my heart. I feel really clean, for the first time ever, clean from the inside out. I am so glad we were roommates. Thank you.


Such a joy to read!

Great entry!


Loved it!

May God bless!
