Dear Malik Abood~

I am so glad you shared your deepest, darkest feelings with me.  I know that had to be exceedingly difficult.  Thank you for being so honest and open.  You don't know how much I appreciate that.

I know that a good amount of people who practice the Islamic (Muslim) faith are not terrorists or extremists, but those who are have ruined for the rest of them.  You are one of the kindest, gentlest people I know, but if you cannot accept me just because I happen to be a Christian, well, then, maybe it is best that we part ways and start seeing other people.

My faith happens to be very important to me.  I was raised in the faith ever since I was a small child; as I grow older, I find believing in Jesus (or practicing my faith) even more monumental in my life.  It has helped me through some astonishingly hard circumstances; if I didn't have Jesus (or my faith), I don't know where I would be today.

I cannot judge you, Malik, because it says in the Bible not to judge people because in the End, in the Final Outcome, we ALL will have to be held accountable for our actions.  We will ALL face our Creator, the Lord God, and only He has the Final Say.  There is no way we can get out of it.  What is done is done and we will all have to answer to God.  Even you.  I don't mean to scare you, but this is the truth; it says it very clearly in the Word.

I can still be friends if that is what you want.  If not, then that is okay, too.  We just cannot be girlfriend or boyfriend, as you stated in your note to me.  That is okay.  While I may be sad for a time, I can accept it and move on.  God will put someone else in my path; I know He will.  In fact, I am certain of it.  Maybe your god will do the same.  I wish nothing but the best for you, Malik, and I pray that your life is full of love, peace, and joy.

Maybe we can still hang out together, perhaps take in a movie, go to the mall, maybe to the skating rink or pizza parlor.  I don't want to lose you, but if you do, then so be it.  I'm just glad I had the chance to know you.  You were everything in a guy I could have possibly wanted, but the faith issue is what prevented us from growing even closer in our relationship.

I am not angry at you at all.  I'm just disappoined that you ddin't tell me this out in the open or sooner.  Maybe then we could have worked up a comprimise.  Since we didn't, then we will probably stop seeing one another.  I am glad you were so honest and forthright; what you did took a lot of guts.  Not many kids in your situation would have been able to do what you did; for that I admire you.  Thank you for your courage.

Again, Malik, I hope we can remain friends.  May God bless you and know that you will always hold a special place in my heart.  I love you as a friend; please always remember that.  I hope one day we can get together and do something fun.  I am sure you would like that; I know I would!

~Love in Christ, your friend (?), Angel Grace.  :)
