So I told my mom that I was going over to my friend's. Normal moms who just got divorced would say no. I mean it is 11 o'clock. But my mom, as you probably already know, is not normal. So I was allowed to go out of the hotel. I kinda feel bad for leaving my mom alone to wallow in pain but I have to go church. And today's been the longest day of my life so I can't miss church today.
.....Wow, today has been really long:
First I told my teacher to shut up which got me into detention.
Then I came up with a devious plan with Lance (ewwww!!) and as I was getting out of school two very scary men threw me into a limo telling me that my parents were in court and had filed a divorce without telling me (without being the whole problem).
Then I broke down in court in front of everybody.
Then, *sniffle* you and me diary, we separated!! *gasp* *gasp*.
And!!! during this whole thing, I didn't speak up, not even once.
So here I am diary- sneaking around town hoping that I don't get caught by the police.
So where is church exactly? The sewage system on Stair WAY. Mark always makes a joke and says that it's the stairway to heaven.
I'm just going to put you down for a second, diary- just long enough to lift the lid without making a sound.
I'm In!!! I give a round of high fives to everybody there and hug a bunch of people- some I know, others I've never seen but it feels so good. Sometimes we all just need a good hug. Opps... Mark's speaking; I better listen and maybe take down a few notes:
Talk 1. Learning to Discern
-Sometimes you are not experienced in letting God lead you, and you are easily turned off the path from what seams to be common sense and good opportunities.
-Beware of misleading choices, satanic influences, and the media.
-God wants you to succeed, he will love and guide you through life.
-Our focus needs to be on what God has shown us through His scripture; not what our friends or t.v have to say.
That last point really got me. Should I hide my religion and live a lie so that I can fit in and keep up my social status? I dunno..... but what I know is that I really got to go... It's like 1 in the morning!!! Ooops! Mom's gonna kill me. Talk to ya later, with more thoughts and more news.
|Mom's fast asleep, she didn't even notice|
me coming in. Thank God! Really.
