I also remember when she asked me if she should cut her hair, and being so happy-go-lucky with an open mind to trying out just about anything new, I said, sure, why not? Little did I know she thought so highly of my opinion! While I do prefer her hair a little longer, she was (and is) so pretty, the hair cut couldn’t take anything away from her beautiful glow.
Now what I don’t remember is the cuckoo-sounding infatuation she had! I’m not denying any of it was there, but looking back, it’s truly hard for me to believe for two reasons: 1) It just doesn’t really match her personality. Yes she’s passionate, yes, she can get quite giddy, and yes she knows how to dedicate herself wholly, but she doesn’t think irrationally! 2) I still don’t see why she would be so infatuated with me. She’s been blessed with jaw-dropping looks, paralleled by a creative, sharp, sharp mind. I ask her all the time what in the world she sees in me. And while it still boggles my mind, I’m actually glad it doesn’t make sense, because that’s exactly the way God operates. He’s the one who changes people’s hearts. He’s the one who made, and continues to make, Ruby view me as someone loveable, as she overlooks my faults. Only by God’s grace!
