We now continue with the adventures of Clint and Rita Vernoy
I had decided to leave
When I got back to
I arrived in
The point is this, the river had branched and we were now over 1500 miles apart instead of 30 miles apart. We could both have continued on our new river watching to see where it would take us. We could have disappeared from each others lives and never have known any reason to care. That would have been the easy choice, the logical choice. She was 16, she had to follow her father. I was in school and working. How could I ever see her again. Why not just accept fate. She was out of my life and I might as well forget her.
Simple Reason….. I DIDN’T WANT TO FORGET HER. I chose to keep in touch with her. I chose to reach past the many miles and win her heart, (only to find out in the end that she had baited the trap so well I didn’t realize who was actually being stalked!!!) Remember the cartoon movie “Oliver” by Disney?…. I love the chijuaja “If dis es torture man….chain mi to de wall!!!!!!”
I fought the current and returned to find her again. I didn’t was to lose her and I still don’t.
Simple Principle: Sometimes the river you need to travel is up river and you need to go against the current to get to it. It is your life, and as long as you do not violate scripture, God has given you a free will to exercise and use as you serve HIM. We will all answer to God for our choices and actions. We can listen to the advise of others but ultimately the choice is ours before God. And we will stand alone on Judgment day with only Christ by our side. Make all of your life choices based on that fact and not on what anybody else might say or think.
