Is This The Year of the Lord God and His Bride?
“And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh; your sons and your daughters shall prophecy, your old men shall dream dreams, and your young men shall see visions. Even on the male and female servants in those days I will pour out my Spirit.
“And I will show wonders in the heavens and on the earth, blood and fire and columns of smoke. The sun shall be turned to darkness, and the moon to blood, before the great and awesome day of the LORD comes. And it shall come to pass that everyone who calls on the name of the LORD shall be saved. For in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there shall be those who escape, as the LORD has said, and among the survivors shall be those whom the LORD calls.” -Joel 2:28-32 ESV Study Bible.

Is this only imaginary . . . ?
If someone written about in this story has a husband – please let her husband understand that his wife had nothing to do with what is written here. I’ve never had anything special to do with her. She has only been to me the sister of a former girlfriend. That is all.
I First Saw Her at Sadwin Apartments in 1995
I was 43. She was 19.
Numbers are interesting to me; for example today is March 5, 2023. 3 + 5 = 8.
And it’s Sunday. Sunday is the Lord’s Day – because He rose from the dead on Sunday – never to die again.
I was born at 8:23 AM.
This year is 2023.
Will 2023 be a very special year?
20 +23 = 43 – the age I was the first time ever I saw your face.

It may have been in the Springtime – after becoming friends with her sister Judith [not her real name] in November of ’94. It was the evening of November 10th, 1994 [four days before my birthday] that Judith knocked on my apartment door at Sadwin Apartments. A young man named Ray was with her.
Their names have been changed in this story for the sake of their privacy – the sisters – Judith and April.
Sadwin’s had been St. Ann’s Convent many years before I lived there.
My parents got married in the chapel of St. Ann’s Convent in June of 1948 – on the second floor.
I lived on the 3rd floor – in a one-room apartment – with Charcoal, the Lord’s Cat.
Moved there on the last day of 1992.
The first story about Sadwin Apartments is on my blog.
The very first story on the blog was posted the day after my mom died in mid-August 2018. My dad was born in August. It’s the 8th month of the year.
A True Story – Like a Sad Old Love Song . . .
An Old Fashioned Love Song by:Three Dog Night W/Lyrics

[Some of my stories have multiple titles. Maybe it’s because of “the writer’s condition” — can’t always make up my mind about the title. Or maybe it’s because there are multiple ways of seeing things and understanding things; and maybe because – as John the Baptist said about “the Lamb of God Who takes away the sin of the world”, “He must increase, and I must decrease.” Maybe it’s because self-centeredness diminishes and Christ-centeredness increases as we struggle to walk by faith and endure pain and loneliness day after day and year after year and decade after decade. And the soul in the middle of all this transitioning centeredness “gets caught between a rock and a hard place” during the transition from mortality to immortality – from self-centeredness to Spirit-centeredness. And as that change happens gradually over a very long time there is uncertainty for a while about what to think and how to say things and how to title things. And how to understand things. For example: I want to post a song here now: “The First Time.” But the first time for me seeing April [not her real name] wasn’t like the first time in that song by Roberta Flack. However, now, after about 28 years since that first time I saw her, something spiritual and lovely is happening in the heart and mind and the soul. And making things even more uncertain is that, maybe, April is, possibly, married. I don’t know for sure her status about that. The thing that is happening is spiritual experience that is like love encounters between two lovers. They are both conversational in nature and sensuous, too. The experiences are like imaginings. And the conversations are usually as silent as thought; but, sometimes they become audible, too. My words become audible; but her words are within me – as my thoughts are within me. And she is within me – just as I Am is within all those who truly believe the gospel of True God – by the grace of True God and by the faith of the Lord Jesus Christ and by His Helper – the Holy Spirit.
The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face
The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face – YouTube
I first saw her at Sadwin Apartments a long time ago. She was the younger sister of my girlfriend at the time – who lived at Sadwin Apartments, as I did. . My girlfriend, Judith, [not her real name] introduced me to her. It was about 1995. If I remember correctly, I was sitting in a chair waiting for the mailman near the entryway inside Sadwin Apartments. And April came out of the elevator with Judith. I stood up. And Judith said to me, “This is my sister April. Isn’t she pretty?” And I said, “Yes, she is,” as I looked upon her face for the first time ever. I can’t remember if we shook hands. And I wasn’t just being polite saying the expected thing. April really was pretty. I understand that just because someone is pretty doesn’t guarantee that they will both get along with each other. It takes more than being pretty for two to be in love and get along together. Anyway, I was about 43 and April was about 19, her sister told me. Several months later, April got an apartment on Elm Street – the same street Sadwin’s was on — but it was quite a way down the street from Sadwin’s. I never went in that house. Sometimes, I walk on Elm Street even though I don’t live there anymore — and I see that house; –it is a light-blue house – a sky-blue house — and I remember forlornly that April lived there once upon a time – in reality. And April had a boyfriend. And April also went to the church where I had been baptized in 1978, her sister told me. So, April — like me — was a believer in Jesus. Eventually, Judith moved away from Sadwin’s and was no longer my girlfriend. And many years later, me and Charcoal — the Lord’s cat — also moved away from Sadwin’s. And then I was at Walmart one day. As I walked from the cashier area with my purchases, my knit hat that was tucked inside my winter coat against my shirt, fell out onto the floor. I didn’t notice this as I was distracted by a beautiful lady greeter up ahead of me near the Walmart entrance. I accidentally kicked my knit hat on the floor. It slid softly and silently across the floor ahead of me directly toward the new and very pretty Walmart greeter. Even with several bags in both hands, I managed to pick up my fallen hat while saying Hi to the new Walmart greeter. Then I placed my bags on the bench inside the store facing the greeter. I was in the habit of transferring all the smaller Walmart bags into about three much larger Price Rite bags that were easier to carry. Three is easier to handle and carry onto the bus than six. And that’s what I did this time, too. Then I sat down facing the Walmart greeter and just silently wondered if she was April. I may have heard that April had children. And so, I didn’t know if she was also married; so, I didn’t say anything. And I had not been feeling so well for a long time; and was no longer going to the mental health center; and was no longer on psychiatric prescriptions. I never found out her name. I saw her there several times when I went shopping. She looked very much like April. I keep thinking of her lately; and wonder if she was/is April.
At 71 years old now I’m not a young man anymore. Still getting around, though. I can walk from Clinton Street in Woonsocket to Stop & Shop in Bellingham in about 20 minutes and buy about 4 items and walk home with them. My leg hurts — the calf muscle of my left leg — so, sometimes I stop walking for a couple of minutes. This helps relieve the pain – then I continue walking. I also go out to take a 30-minute walk about 3 times a week; and go shopping at Family Dollar on Clinton Street – only a 3-minute walk from home – for milk and bread and other household items.
I used to give regularly to charities on a monthly basis; but I’m not enthusiastic anymore about that way of giving. I would like to give more personally now. Because I live so simply, my monthly Social Security is more than enough. So, I was wondering if you could use some help? It would be freely given/sent to you. And I know about PayPal and Cash App.
So, April, if you are the one I believe you are, you’re welcome to write back to me.
A Few Days Later
About your name, Angela.
A is for Alpha. “I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.” -Revelation 1:8 ESV Study Bible.

G is for God
E is for Eternity

And the last A is for Again and for Always and for Adoring Love for Lady Angela who believes in our Lord.
I wonder: Is it alright to adore the Lord in a Lady who believes in Him and receives Him into her heart?
And Angela is also beautiful.
And angel is in Angela
A good angel
A lovely and lovable angel of the Lord.
And in the name Johnson is the name John —

In the Wind of My Spirit
When You’re Born Again
Jesus said to Nicodemus, in John chapter 3:
“Jesus answered, ‘Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’ The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear its sound, but you do not know where it comes from or where it goes. So it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit.” -John 3:5-8 ESV Study Bible.

In the Spirit on the Lord’s Day . . .
You can’t see this with the eyes of a man.
The eyes of your understanding must be opened to perceive the things of the Spirit of God.
I want to hug my Lady Lord Jesus
I have imaginary experiences in my apartment with Angela . . .
Or maybe they aren’t imaginary . . .
Maybe they are real true experiences “in the Spirit on the Lord’s Day . . .”
And maybe Angela really is Angela who I met at Sadwin’s in 1995.
Or maybe the Lord knows I find Him more attractive and lovable in the form of a Lady.
So, maybe, He’s appearing to me “in the Spirit” in the form of an attractive young lady – such as Angela – to win my love for Himself — the Lord my God.
And, maybe, it’s like this:
“Then God said, ‘Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. And let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over the livestock and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.’
“So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.” -Genesis 1:26, 27. ESV Study Bible.
And also like this, somewhat – but not exactly:
“I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day, and I heard behind me a loud voice like a trumpet saying, ‘Write what you see in a book and send it to the seven churches, to Ephesus and to Smyrna and to Pergamum and to Thyatira and to Sardis and to Philadelphia and to Laodicea.” -Revelation 1:10, 11. ESV Study Bible.

So, I just wonder and consider and pray about all this. Asking for the Lord’s help and protection and understanding. And discernment.

And maybe it’s like this:
“The elder to the elect lady and her children, whom I love in truth, and not only I, but also all who know the truth, because of the truth that abides in us and will be with us forever:
“Grace, mercy, and peace will be with us, from God the Father and from Jesus Christ the Father’s Son, in truth and love.” -2 John 1:1-3 ESV Study Bible.

God have mercy on me, a sinner — no better than anyone else on His earth.
In the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
If Angela is married — then God bless her and her husband and their marriage.
And may they forgive me for writing about Angela — if Angela is married.

“Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more. And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, ‘Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man. He will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God. He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.” -Revelation 21:1-4 ESV Study Bible.
