Totty was walking by with her boyfriend and we said hello. She walked up the stairs and said something like, "what are you doing in this place?"
My friend looked at me to see if I would respond, "we are a group of ladies on a retreat."
Totty asked, "what denomination are you?"
It took several seconds for me to reply that we were all in different churches but shared a relationship with Jesus.
"Do you believe in Jesus?" My friend asked her.
"Totty" a tall blonde woman dressed in a t shirt and flip flops, smiled sweetly, "yes."
I want to cry right now, thinking about the possibility of this particular person walking by the hotel just at the moment my girlfriend and I were preparing to go inside for the night.
After some more conversation, we asked if Totty would like to come inside with us for some cake.
Totty beamed. She turned to her boyfriend to ask if he wanted to join us. He graciously declined.
Ladies in the cozy Great Room were delighted to see her.
Something told my friend to ask Totty if she would like prayer.
"I need deliverance."
As powerful a time we had this past weekend, encouraging one another, walking on the beach, sharing the word, I will never forget Totty.
God bless you my new friend, our prayers will always be with you.
