|They had made cherry delight! This is our family birthday tradition...I've never known anyone else to make it. It was August 14, the day before my birthday.
Eventually we got around to playing volleyball (the original reason I had approached them), but I had forgotten what had brought me to these dear people, because what I think I really sought had already been deeply satisfied. I felt cared for and known. God did that, and he used them...and my pastor friend on this sweet Sunday.
|The young woman with the one-year-old baby went to my high school and college...graduating 10 years after me. The family sent her and her husband to get me after I told them I'd come back later to play volleyball.
|Mariama fell sleep and was cared for by the family while I played volleyball when she woke up.
