Haha love the expression on the lady to the left.
Finally arriving in NYC!!! It's been a while...
Telly and I got off the PATH, looked at each other and squealed. The song "Empire State of Mind" by Alicia Keys also started playing in our heads.
First step out from the underground at 33rd Street and everything just seems a bit crazy. People everywhere, noise, cars, people, coming in from every direction.
Nevertheless, it was a gorgeous HOT day and there were plenty of people just hanging out in the city.
For those of you who don't know, our school is in Jersey City, New Jersey, which is across the Hudson River from New York City, New York. From our school into NYC, it only takes about 15 minutes by train.
As I looked at the pretty houses, I wondered who lived in them and what they were doing. I wondered if they knew God and that He was watching over them.
And so that ended our little walk-adventure in NYC.
Later on, instead of going to church 2 hours away in Pennsylvania, I attended the evening service at the nearby Assembly of God in Bayonne, New Jersey. One incident that stood out in my mind was that when I was up at the altar praying, someone came and laid a blanket over my shoulders. At that point, I realised that it was for modesty reasons. I had gone to church that day in a tank top and my shoulders were uncovered. You could see my spaghetti straps as well.
At that point, I realised that even though it was really hot outside, it was still not ok to go to church in tank tops. I had forgotten how well people dressed on Sundays to go to church around here.
Yesterday was just a regular ol' day at school. Today looks to be the same. I have homework to do.
