I have these neighbors across the street who are always yelling and cursing and up-all-night. I have never met them because I haven't wanted to meet them. They scare me. The cops are over there a lot. They were there again yesterday because they were fighting in the street. I love where I live, but those neighbors make it hard to truly enjoy.
Anyway, when I heard them out there yelling, I called Silent Unity Prayer Line. I have never called the prayer line for these neighbors before, because they make me so tense that I usually forget to pray at all. I wish they would just move out, but instead I prayed that God would bless them and calm them.
Then late last night, I did something strange...
Have you ever had "Laughing Cow" cheese? They are these little cheese rounds that come wrapped in red wax. Whenever I eat one, I like to play with the wax like modeling clay. So last night I made a little red wax heart, then I snuck out ninja-style and placed it on top of my neighbor's mailbox. (I didn't put it inside their mailbox, because mail has been getting stolen lately)
I'm not quite sure why I did it. I guess it's just a symbol of me trying to love them, even tho they make it quite difficult.
