“JUST UP THE ROAD”

OLETHA WAS ON HER WAY HOME FROM SHOPPING, TODAY WAS A VERY GOOD DAY SHE FOUND A GREAT ROTISSERIE SHE HAD WANTED FOR SOMETIME BUT FOUND THEM JUST A BIT PRICEY FOR HER BUDGET. BUT TODAY SHE FOUND THE PERFECT ONE

SHE FOUND IT IN A LOCAL RECYCLE SHOP AND SHE FOUND TWO OTHER ITEMS SHE WAS HOLDING OUT ON PURCHASING UNTIL SHE FOUND THEM ON SALE, BUT AFTER HER TIME WITH THE LORD SHE FELT AN UNCTION TO GO TO HER FAVORITE SHOPPING SPOT AND THERE SHE FOUND JUST WHAT SHE NEEDED AT THE PRICES SHE COULD AFFORD

HER JEHOVAH-JIREH, HER HEAVENLY FATHER HAD COME THROUGH FOR HER ONCE AGAIN. OLETHA WAS AN ORPHAN AND WIDOWED TWICE, SHE HAD FOUR ADULT CHILDREN THAT SHE HAD PROVIDED FOR AS BEST SHE COULD THROUGHOUT THEIR LIVES. GOD HAD BEEN FOR VERY GOOD TO HER AND HER CHILDREN OVER THE YEARS, THEY NEVER HAD A FAMILY VACATION BUT GOD PROVIDED OTHER ANGELS WHO TOOK HER CHILDREN ON VACATION TRIPS FROM TIME TO TIME.

OLETHA HERSELF HAD NEVER EXPERIENCED THE FINER THINGS OF LIFE FIRST HAND BUT SHE WAS AFFORDED THE OPPORTUNITIES TO BE AMONGST THE ELITE THROUGH SERVING AS A HOUSEKEEPING ENGINEER (GLORIFIED NAME FOR A HOUSEKEEPER), A COMMERCIAL JANITOR AND AS A NON-MEDICAL CAREGIVER.

GOD HAD BEEN GOOD TO HER OVER THE YEARS SHE WAS BORN OUT OF AN ADULTEROUS AFFAIR HER MOTHER HAD WITH A MILITARY MP IN DECEMBER OF 1952. HE WAS STATIONED NEAR THE TOWN WHERE OLETHA WAS BORN BUT SHE NEVER WAS ALLOWED TO KNOW HIM BECAUSE HER MOTHER NEVER TOLD HER HUSBAND THAT OLETHA WAS NOT HIS CHILD

SHE WAS RAISED UNDER A LIE AND A CLOUD OF PRESUMED SECRECY BUT NO ONE WAS FOOLED BUT HER MOTHER. OLETHA WOULD FIND OUT MANY YEARS LATER THAT EVERYONE KNEW THE TRUTH AND THAT WAS THE REASON SHE WAS ALWAYS’ TREATED WITH MUCH DISDAIN, OSTRASIZED AND CRITICIZED FOR ALMOST ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING

ON HER RIDE HOME AS SHE WAS THINKING OVER THESE THINGS ONCE MORE SHE NOTICED A NEIGHBORHOOD SHE PASSED MANY TIMES JUST UP THE ROAD FROM WHERE SHE WAS CURRENTLY LIVING WITH TWO OF HER ADULT CHILDREN. FOR THE FIRST TIME SHE FELT COMPELLED TO TAKE A DRIVE THROUGH THE NEIGHBORHOOD ON HER WAY HOME WITH HER FANTASTIC FINDS

AS OLETHA DROVE THROUGH THE NEIGHBORHOOD UP THE ROAD SHE WAS THANKFUL SHE HAD TAKEN THE TURN BECAUSE AS SHE DROVE THE BEAUTIFULLY MANICURED NEIGHBORHOOD SHE WAS REMINDED OF JESUS’ WORDS, “I GO AWAY TO PREPARE A PLACE FOR YOU THAT WHERE I AM YOU MAY BE ALSO”. IT WAS SUCH A BEAUTIFUL LITTLE OASIS RIGHT UP THE ROAD

OLETHA BEGAN TO THANK GOD WITH TEARS ROLLING DOWN HER FACE THAT ONE DAY SHE KNEW THAT THOUGH SHE HAD BEEN CHEATED OUT HER EARTHLY INHERITANCE AND HAD NEVER EVEN OWNED A HOME OF HER HOME DOWN HERE, GOD HAD NOT FORGOTTEN HER AND SHE HAD A PROMISE SHE COULD HOLD ONTO FOR ALL ETERNITY WITH JOY

AS SHE CONTINUED TO MAKE HER SHORT JOURNEY SHE WAS REMINDED OF JUST HOW MUCH THE LORD HAD DONE FOR HER OVER THE YEARS IN SPITE OF HARD TRIALS BUT MOST OF ALL SHE WAS REMINDED OF HOW CRAZY IN LOVE WITH HER HEAVENLY FATHER SHE HAD BECOME.

NOT BECAUSE SHE WAS SO GOOD BUT BECAUSE FATHER GOD HAD PROVEN TO BE BETTER THAN GOOD TO HER AND HER CHILDREN SO MUCH SO THAT SHE DECIDED TO SEND HER SPIRITUAL MOM ROSES FOR MOTHERS’ DAY

BECAUSE GOD HAD BLESSED THEM TO COME TOGETHER AS MOTHER AND DAUGHTER AND SHE EVEN HAD THE SAME FIRST NAME AS HER BIOGICAL MOTHER THAT WENT HOME TO GLORY WHEN OLETHA WAS JUST 22 YEARS OLD

YES OLETHA SAID TO HERSELF “GOD HAS BEEN GOOD” AS SHE DROVE BACK DOWN THE ROAD TO HER MODEST BUT  BLESSED HOME TO GIVE GOD GLORY ANOTHER DAY
