do you love Jesus?
Yesterday at the store, I saw an old babushka hobbling with a shopping buggy up and down the aisle. She had a Soviet-style scarf, the one that is the symbol of old Russia. I went up to her and asked if she was from Russia. She had the biggest smile on her face, and she said yes. I told her that I lived in Russia for four months. She asked, "Motter, Fotter?" I told her that they were not from Russia. Then she said clear as a bell, "Do you love Jesus?" I told her yes, and she smiled. Then, she asked in Russian what what my name was, but I did not understand her. Then she just said, "Name, name." I told her, and then I asked her what her name was. "Tania." I told her I was happy to meet her. She smiled yet again, and then we both finished our shopping.
