I WAS INSPIRED TO JOT THIS SHORT STORY DOWN. PLEASE GIVE YOUR HONEST OPINION. I WOULD LOVE TO HEAR WHAT YOU THINK.

THE VISION 


 



There was once a troubled woman and she had gypsy blood running through her veins. She could not help what she once was:  and is a "sinner".  But she became Born Again, and came to know and love the LIVING God. The gypsy woman gave her life to the Most High God, but was torn between her flesh and desires and God's will for her life in the beginning. It made her afraid to death to think of God abandoning her, so she cut away the things and people that made her weak and fall into temptation. She made herself blind, so that she would not see the wicked desires of her heart come to her in form. She had to let go and let God do his will.



 


So one day a man came in search of the gypsy woman and he was captivated, and he came to live in her land and  he fell deeply in love with her. The gypsy told the man the visions she had concerning him and those he loved and she warned him. The gypsy became concerned because the man would not believe the visions, and did not take heed to her warning. Everything the gypsy woman told the man would come to be. With the exception of one thing, she told the man that she had a vision of them both in their old age and the house they would live in and how they would spend the rest of their days together till the end of their lives. But the man assumed that meant they would wed and be together till their old age. The man was wrong, that is not what the vision said.  It was later revealed to the gypsy that he would be her husband in their old age. That was the vision. In their old age they would be reunited.



 


The second part of the vision is that the gypsy knew the "one" was coming for her and he did. The one that she always knew and had known had come. The man traveled from a far land and come in search of the woman, but the woman would not agreed to see him. He did everything he could, but still she turned him away. Then finally after much effort the woman one late night winter came to the man. He greeted her with much joy, he wanted to speak with her conceringing what God wanted him to do. So they walked up a stairway, him in front of her and on the back of his legs where drawn eyes glaring back at her. She stopped and it seemed as time stood still in her mind, she saw the man that would be her husband, the one she would live her youth with and she saw him leaving and coming back. She saw the eyes on the back of his calves and knew this was the sign. He saw that something was wrong and told her to come into his room. They sat down and the gypsy became relieved and confused by what she just saw. Then they sat on the bed and began to talk, the pain in the eyes of the man was great and he began to cry. He was divided, by duty and desire and the gypsy too began to cry becuase she felt compassion for the man. She knew the man had to go to another land. She wanted to tell him to stay, but knew that she could not stop what needed to take place. So she encouraged him to do God's will and so he did. She was deeply saddened by his going. But the vision was true and he would come back for her and this time would never leave her till his calling to return home to his Maker. All the time that passed never stopped the man from thoughts of his gypsy bride and so he waited patiently. Soon came the time when the man was making plans to return to his beloved. One night the gypsy had a dream and the Holy Spirit spoke to her in the dream. The gypsy had lived under a curse for many years and her curse was one of the heart. She had no desire in her heart to carry a child in the womb, but on this night she dreamed that she would give life to a son. A son born out of pure love, a child born out of God's planning, the child of God's promise to her. And she was very happy in her heart, overjoyed with hope and longing for the promises of God. So she shared with the man that would be her husband that she would have a son, another child and the man replied with no ounce of doubt or hesitation, "I know my beloved, we will have a son and he will be loved". "I believe your words" he said to the gypsy and this gave the gypsy much peace in her heart. She would leave the land of her people and live in the land of his people and would spend her days there bound by the promises of love and vows made by the heart in the presence of God. This is what the vision revealed and is and shall be. Blessed are they that do God's will.

Interesting spiritual, almost parable like in it's delivery, still even for non-believers and agnostics (like myself) a well written piece with good biblical characteristics.
