Do You Remember the First Time You Got One of These?

“Please don’t make any noise,” I begged as I sneaked up the trellis on the side of the car port. Still, there was this one board that couldn’t help itself.

I was only twelve and didn’t weigh much but that darn board didn’t care; it could feel you comin’ and start hollerin’ like a baby.

Onto the roof I climbed and scooted over near of the corners. There were two things goin’ on that night … uh, three actually.

moon-and-stars

  • The moon was shinin’ like a bright new penny
  • It was a special summer night
  • No one else was on the roof

There was nothin’ particular goin’ on in my brain, just enjoying the night and the moon and the stars … all of God’s wonderful heavens that He is so good to share with me. I was taken away in all the wonderment.

And that’s when it happened…

The whole thing took place in one swift motion. A shadow moved off to my right, as I turned it was on me real quick, like a spider. The kiss landed on my cheek and just like that the spider flew down the trellis.

I leaped up as he ran across the yard. It was the boy on the next street. We rode the school bus together every day. I never knew.

From then on we did that “eyes lookin’ down thing”…

But never spoke of what happened.

May Your Glass Always Be Half Full
