One night as I was walking down the lonely street I can to a church and the front doors were open. I kept walking and wondering why the church doors would be open at 12 o’clock mind night. As I was walking I heard a voice call my name “Amaris” I ignored it and kept walking feeling alone and empty. Wondering where to go, I once again heard a voice call out my name.
I sat on an empty park bench to do some thinking. As I sat there and thought about my life, something said go back to the church. As I got up and walked back to the church. God spoke to me and said my child listen when I talk to you. I left the doors of the church open so that you would have a place to go. You roads may be lonely and you may have no where to go but know that I am always here for you.
As I walked up the steps of the church a heavy burden was left from me. I stopped and was about to walk away. God spoke to me and said my child it is ok you are safe with me. So I continued to walk in the church. Once I entered the door I walked to the front of the church and sat down wonder what I was doing in a church at this time of night. As I sat there I started thinking about a lot of things. I thought about my Papa the fun times that we had together. I thought about Big Mamma and her coming to spend the night with us and going fishing with her. At this point I had a lot of thoughts running through my mind. As I sat there I looked to my right and I looked to my left and it was like I was surround by family that was no longer with me because they had been called home to be with the Lord.
I started to cry not because I was scared but because I was overjoyed. God told me look you do not have to be sad because your loved ones are with me they are safe, happy and at peace. Live you life and be happy because you will get to be with your loved ones once again. If you just believe. As I sat there my surrounding started to fade slowly I began to realize that I was dreaming and slowly I started to wake up and realize that I was at home in my warm bead. When I was fully awoke I got up and went outside and looked into the heavens and said Thank you Lord for never leaving me alone in the mean old world. I went back in the house and sat down on the couch and came to realize that I am never alone where ever I go what ever I am doing God is right there by my side.
