Grace For The Prodigal
Me, I went back home to my one little room that I was renting from Rob and Tammy. A room just yards away from cabins full of tenants that weren’t much different from me. People that I was just one more bad incident away from becoming. And even though over the past few months I had made good friends at the Sundowner, I still wasn’t happy. How could I be? I was away from what I knew to be the truth, I was away from God. In reality, the happy face that I put on in front of others was just a masquerade, I was a fake. My life was still just wasted time, time spent searching for answers to questions I didn’t even know. I had become just another “regular” on the barstool of life, reliving what might have been and yesterday’s news.
