Last night Tommy and the girls and I along with the other couple we’re vacationing with went to the village of Lake George which is in the area of where we are vacationing. The village is nice, it’s very clean and full of mostly souvenir shops, restaurants and ice cream shops much like any vacation destination. There was also a palm reader…
Back track; I saw the store front for the palm reader a day or two earlier when the girls and I were in the village. I was so, so very curious but Alyssa and Lelly talked me out of seeing her. Last night, I didn’t let them talk me out of it. I know as a Christian I’m not supposed to pay any attention to those who proclaim to know the future or can do “readings,” that they are not from God. But I have to admit my curiosity got the best of me and in I went.
I sat down and showed her my right palm. She said I was a very honest hard working woman and that I would live a long life. Ok; could apply to just about anyone. She then said I am a person who helps others I’m always helping others and that I would do well in a supervised position or a supervisor position. She then asked me what I do for a living, I replied that I am a nurse, she nodded. Interesting.
She said I was destined to be a mother of 2 and asked me if I had any children I laughed a bit and said yes I have 4…She then asked if 2 were not with me or were taken or lost, I replied yes (I had 2 miscarriages before Samantha). Again, interesting. She said I’m the person people go to when they need someone they can depend on. She also said I was meant to be with Tommy and that I would have a really nice retirement. That part really struck me because Tommy often thinks about and talks of our retirement. And when I started my job with the board of Ed, Tommy was the one I called when I signed up for my tax deferred annuity and pension. So yes, retirement is talked about fairly often between Tommy and I.
I don’t know if I believe in people who do readings like the one I went to last night. There are many who live their lives according to what their “advisor” tells them to do. I was not told to do anything or that something bad would happen if I didn’t listen to her. It was interesting that she hit the nail on the head a couple of times. I didn’t feel unsafe or that I was in the presence of evil. But I guess the devil wouldn’t want me to feel unsafe if that is where this woman was from. I did pray last night for forgiveness. For my participation in something that according to the Bible is not from God.
Going to see this woman told me I must have even more faith. That God is indeed in control of my life and I must continue to submit to His will.
