Another remarkable sign from Nate and God
Yesterday, I went to have my nails done. I haven't done this in years. First I had my pedicure and was scheduled to have a manicure afterwards, but I needed to get back home to greet family from out of town. Decided I would come back later for my manicure. I was sitting in a chair waiting to have my nails done, next to two ladies talking. Most of their conversation was about God and Church. I had a feeling about the lady next to me. I can't explain it, but I wanted to tell her about Nate and ask her to pray for me and my family. I was included in some of their conversation, just talking about her Yorkie she had with her and nail stuff. When we got back to more talk about church, I asked where she attended. She said First Baptist Downtown. I told her my best friend since 2nd grade (Michelle Bauer Folks) went there (thinking no way would they know each other - it's a HUGE church), she said Oh, yes, I know Michelle, John, Charlie and Evelyn. We worked together at the church. She said she would tell Michelle she met me. I then told her that Michelle would probably tell her something else about me - the story of Nate. I then poured my heart out, all about Nate, his life, his passing - all to a stranger - crying and crying. She listended. Then she said, "You know what, I've been praying for you and your family already". Michelle had put us on a prayer list and the lady already knew about us and Nate's passing. Her name is Gayle Crist. She is a Stephen's Minister at First Baptist, Tulsa. We continued to talk and cry. Then as she left, she hugged and kissed me and told me she will continue to pray, just as she had been. Unbelieveable. Thank you again God and Nathan.
