Well, I had the opportunity to apologize to my long lost friend tonight. Below is some of the dialog:
JBR: Hey Friend! Thanks for accepting my friends request. Good to see you on Facebook! My how time has flown. You look good!
Long Lost Friend ("LLF"): I know...like 20 years has gone by. Are you still in SFL?
JBR: 22 years in fact. Yes still in S.Fla. Still attending CRPC and others. You've been on my mind for the longest time. Sorry how things ended. Blessings.
LLF: Oh my friend...do not be...I went to Atlanta 'lost' and now am found again. I only have happy memories of you and I learning to sign and more.. you helped me grow and explore. I think of you often specifically recently when Davy Jones died. Your Mom?? I am back in VA with my Mom, sister and family...still no husband but that's OK too. I am a JW which I think we talked about.
JBR:Well, I was so messed up back then emotionally. Back then was NOT "the real me." A lot has changed over the years. A lot of baggage from my past has been cleared up. I am more Real than ever!
LLF: We were both messed up but looking for a relationship with God...lordy we could have been doing worse
A friend of mine from CRPC at that time just posted on FB that she and husband went on first date today 24 years ago. I have nothing but fond memories from FL
Then we went on to private messaging for another two hours catching up. Sad what you learn about a person that you have not been in contact with for over 20 years.

My Heavenly Daddy is healing
me from the inside out.
Transparency is Real.
Many times painful.
Daddy let me be secure in You only!
