As they rode, they talked.
“I really missed you, Claressa"
“I missed you, too Manaheem. But, I had to be sure I wasn't deciding to follow Jesus for the wrong reason."
His face lit up. "So, you did decide to follow Jesus?"
"How could I have done otherwise? He died for us all and arose again to prove it. After some thought, I prayed and accepted Him as my Savior the night I went home alone from the meeting."
"That's wonderful Claressa. I’m so happy. Now we can truly be one, because we are one in Him."
"Yes, Manaheem, isn't it wonderful?"
They embraced for a moment. Then, he said “I guess we should join the others in being baptized."
"Certainly. And not only that, I think we should get re-married. After all, we were divorced."
"That's right, my dear. I almost forgot, since now it seems we've been together forever. But, we do need to have a good testimony before the world, don't we?" He sighed.
"Isn't it great to be a follower of Jesus?"
"It certainly is. And I have you to thank for telling me about Him."
He sighed again. "You know what I’m thinking? I really should go and tell my foster brother, the king about my new-found faith."
"Herod? Do you think he'll believe you?"
"Probably not, but at least I owe him a try. Hopefully he hasn't left Jerusalem yet."
"Let me know when you're going. I shall pray for you."
"Thank you my dear. You know, I think I love you more than ever."
“I know I love you more than ever." Once more their lips met.
