After we talked Bobbie says "let me ask you a question?"
I say "sure".
"We were talking, Lenny and I, just the other day and we were trying to remember 'How did we come to know each other'?"
The answer I recall with ease.
"I was working in the video game store when a former employee of yours, James MacAfee, invited me to see one of your presentations."
Like a blast from the past Lenny remembers James. "Wow! James MacAfee. I forgot about him. Is that when you met Marlon also?"
"Actually this is about six months before I met your brother." I add. "Marlon invited me to visit your church and I saw you there leading the worship and I said 'I know that man from somewhere'? Then it dawned on me where I had met you."
Lenny then says something truly God gifted. "It is amazing how for a season God put James MacAfee in both ours lives at almost the same time. James invited you to a meeting. We meet and just for that short time James is with us and here you are a permanent part in our lives since that day. For a season and life."
Definitely God ordained.
In a future blog I will tell you the story of how Marlon and I met and how God used him to bring me back to His borders and my first love.
