They fell asleep in each other’s arms.they woke up the next morning. “Hunnie, what do you want for breakfast?”she asked. “Um. Whatever. I usualy do a sinple breakfast. What ever you want to make hun.”he answered.
“Bacon and eags ok?”she asked.”yea! Sounds good! ” he said. “Ok cool. “She said. She wore a pink tank top and pazama botom. She went out to the smal kitchen area. By smal it was smaller then a cubicle but it worked.
She took out the eags and bacon .she put them on the frying pan. She put her hair up and put it in a scrunchy. He came out.
“You look like a zombie?”she said in a teasing tone.”i dont really function before my first cup of cofee. He took out the place for the filter. He took out a new filter. He put it inside then poored the cofee been in. He put the watter then turned in on.
“I love mornings. Usualy i am ready and raring to go!”she said smiling. “Why am i not surprised? “He asked. He held her waist while she cooked. She once in a while gave her a kiss.
“You do i am trying to cook. Your distracting me. I am going to burn the eags!” she exclaimed. He laughed.
She kissed him a few times. ” its weird. My family was strict. I amNot use to being able to pratice physical contact. “He said.
“My family was not quite as strict. I have kissed before. I am sory. I did not realize at the time that i might regret it. I am sorry. ” she said.
“Hey no condemnaton ok.i am not meen! ” he said. “I know that. “She said. When the eags and backon were finished,she put them on a plate. She brought them to the table. He prayed and they eat.
” so what is on the agenda today?” she asked. ” i figured we could rent out a paddle boat. “He said. “Cool!” she said.” do you want to play pay ball? There is a place nearby!”he told her. “I can schoot you with paint ball?”she asked.”i dont know if i would put it quite like that but yes. “He said.
“Cool! This sounds like a lot of fun. “She answered. “It is a lot of fun. Have you ever played before? “He asked. “No i have not. I have aways wanted to. I am looking froward to it.”she said. “Its fun. ” he said. “Im sure it is.” she said.
They finished eating. “So am i a good cook? “She asked. “You are. Thank you. ” he said. He hugged and kissed her. “I like to cook. ” she said. ” your good at it. ” he said.
They used the campgrounds shower facility. Then they returned to the cabin and got changed. He wore blue shirt shorts and sandles. He was not much for shorts or sandles. Sense he was goung on a boat, he decided to wear them.
She wore a pink shirt and tan shorts and flip flops. He was stil shocked that his parents set him with her. They had always been very strict. They were conservitive. Old fashioned. Why did they bring them together?
He assumed that they would set him up with a fellow independent fundimental baptist. That was not what happened. He was curius why.
Yet there was something about her. He did feel something for her. That he knew. It made no sense. Maybe it did not need to.
“Ready?” he asked. “You bett. ” she said. She took his hand. They walked to the maine office. He paid for the rental. An attendent took off the chain from the boat. They got in and lunched.
“I love being on a boat. ” jeny told him. “I do too. ” he said. “I love watter. I could spend a whole day on the watter and be fine with it. ” she told him.
“I dont get out hear mearly as much as i would like to. ” he told her. “I know what you meen. “She said.
“I find i am suprised that our parents paired us up. My parrents are so strict. It does not make sense that they would agree to this. ” he said.
“You could ask them?” she asked. ” i could but i am not sure that i want to.” he said. “Why would you not want to?” she asked. “It could take away from the mystique. ” he said. She laughed. “Ok! ” she said.
“Mayby i dont need to understand it. Some things mayby are not suposed to be understood mayby not now at least. I am probably not making any sense. ” he said.
“I think i understand. Its like your favorate song. You have your idea what it meens. You might be curious what the real meening is. Your tempted to go check it out on song facts. You dont want your views shatered. You just keep wondering. ” she said.
“I had not thought of it that way but ok. Most of the songs i like are prety srlf explinitory like “holy holy holy” or “churches one foundation ” or “a mighty fortres is our God. “. With the exception of “i come to the garden alone ” i dont have a clue. ” he said.
“I am prety sure i know why my perents aranged for me to marry a Baptist pastor. My dad wanted to become more conservitive. My dad is a committed. United Methodist but he is slightly to the right of most united Methodist. He always has been. As to your perents Mayby they wanted you to not tone down your doctrine but mayby your approach. ” she said. “Mayby i dont know. Mayby i should not try to psychoanalyze it. ” he told her.
“Am i a disappointment? ” she asked. He touched her hair. His heart sank. “No sweetheart. Not at all. “He said.”i just wanted to make sure. “She said. “No your great. “He said. “I was just checking. ” she said.
“Am i not quite what you expected? ” he asked. “Your not quite what i expected. It is a good thing. I like you. ” he said. “I am glad to hear that. ” he answered.
They stayed out in the watter for a while. Then they camr back in. They reterned the boat. He hugged her. She held on to him. She never expected him to be so affectionate. He loved be affectionate with her. She would come to crave it from him.
They then drove to a paint ball place. They rented the equipment. They decided to play a kind of hide and go seek. They gave themselves plenty of leed time. They went after eachother.
He saw her coming. Botg perpared to get the first schot. Jeny got there first. She kept fireing. She gothis face shield. By the time he could see again he had been hit multiple times.
They both started laughing. They went again. He was able to snkeek up on her.she did not see that coming. .they lost tract of time. Some other people ask them to join a capture the flag type game. They worked together and got the enemy flag.
They decided to call that. A day afyer several hours. He took her hand.”you are a mess!”she remarked.”your one to talk!” he responded. They both laughed.
They went back to the camp ground. They got cleaned off then changed. They had a late lunch. “I have never foubd it easy to express my feeling. I dont wear my heart on my sleve. ” he said.
“I suspected you might be a bit of a stoic.”she said. “So i have been told.”he said. “I will have to tickle you or something. Get it out of you!”she said. “I dont think that is nessisary. ” he said. She laughed.
“I like that you are so affectionate. ” she said. “It is the only way i know how to express my feelings. “He said.”touch could be your love language. I am not much for physical touch. I cringe when my sisters hug me. Its different with you. I like hugging you. “She said. “I am glad to hear that.”he said. They laughed.
“Something is different with touching you i guess. “She said.”i know what you meen.”he said.
After dinner,they read the first 17 verses of romans together. He wondered how two ministers doing devotions in romans would go.
“I see verse 16 and 17 as the key verses of the whole book or at least the first 11 chapters. ” he said. She thought it over. ” i can see that. ” she said.
“I used to think that the first 14 verses were just introductory. Hi how are you, im good. In looking at it more in dept, i believe that they corispond with the thises satement found in 16 and 17.” he said. ” yes i definitely see that. I never really thought of it that way but it makes sense. ” she said.
“I see key words ,not ashamed of gospel, power of God unto salvation.jew first,also to the greek, Righteousness of God. Just shall live by faith. I think that the first 11 chapters corispond to those. ” he said. He felt very self conscious about all of this. He feard that she would view him as a hick with little education. He feard losing the spiritual leadership of the family. Worse then that he feard never having it.
She was interested in what he said. She wrote it down. She pondered it in her mind. She considered it a long time later.
After they prayed together. They held hands while they prayed. While he did not think it went well. It had an impact on her he did not realize.
They played minopoly after. She ended up wining. They went outside and sat on the smal porch. “Beautiful night?” she remarked. “It is. ” he said.
“Hey sense i planed today, you want to plan tomorrow? ” he asked. She smiled. “Cool! Yea i would. Can i lead the bible study?” she asked. “You want to cover the topic of wrath of God?” he asked. “I know that God is a God of wrath as well as love. I am not afraid of it. ” she said. “Yea you can. ” he said. “Sounds good! ” she said.
She put her hands around his waist. She placed her head on his beck. ” why do you have a hard time expressing how you feel?”she asked.”i have no idea. I always have. It is a bit of a family joke. ” he said.
“You are very analytical. That is fine.i can work with that. ” she said. She held on to him. He kissed her.
After a while, they decided to go to bed. They talked a bit. They eventually fell asleep.
