For those who have wondered about Mr. May. Here is the beginning of our story. As told September 29,2010.
“So I mowed my lawn for the 1st time this AM; I’ve always lived places where it was taken care of, and Jonathan usually does it here. Well, it was overdue and I tackled it (push mower), and I am REALLY proud, but thats not the BEST part. While I am mowing a little old man walks by, we start talking and he tells me he lives a few houses away. He says he lived there since 1951! I told him that I walk my girls by there all of the time, the next time I came by I would stop or wave. He said he would like that because he is all alone. His wife of 60 years passed in January and GET THIS…TODAY would have been there 60th wedding anniversary. I said I was a Christian and asked if I could pray for him, he said he would really like that too!
After an experience like this, it hard to me to fathom people questioning GOD’s existence. He is ALL around us, if you are open to the possibilities. I KNOW beyond a shadow of a doubt that I was supposed to be mowing my lawn this morning so I could meet Mr. May and pray for him. Will you keep him in your prayers today? I know this day is going to be rough for him.
So, if you come by my house and I’m not here, just look down the street, there’s a REALLY good possibility that I’m having ice tea with Mr. May.
FAST FORWARD..TWO WEEKS LATER-
I made him a YUMMY roast and veggies. I brought dinner to his house; as I approached I saw him through the window, he was tapping his fingers on the bar like he was nervous. he was wearing a perfectly pressed shirt and pants. He had laid out his finest china. We sat down to dinner and enjoyed THE BEST conversation; twice he cried about his wife. I had to pinch myself in order not to cry too. He was soo cute, because he acted like he was coughing when he was really crying. Afterward he have me a tour of his home and told me the beautiful roses on the table were for the cook; I did cry at that point. I left after we embraced a couple of times, promising to return really soon. He told me more than a couple of times how much he enjoyed it. I promised to do it again…a lot, if that was ok with him and he told me he would REALLY like that. I walked home with THE BIGGEST smile on my face. Mr. May is my new friend. I was going to take him some stroganoff today, but it didnt turn out so good. hehe”
