Chapter 9: Young Adulthood

ROSEWOOD: AN AUTOBIOGRAPHY

Several major events occurred toward the end of my adolescence that pushed me into the next stage of my life.

On a personal level, I experienced a "dark night of the soul" where God seemed to have disappeared from my life. In fact, it truly seemed that either God was not there, or He did not care. This experience separated me from every cultural basis for belief in God and the practices of faith I had become accustomed to up to then. When God returned, I came to know Him in a new way. This transformation in our relationship set the stage for what was to come.
The vacant property that my mother had seen earlier in my life had gone fallow for the years in between. However, one day when she was passing by there was a new "For Sale" sign in front, and God told her to ask about it again.

VACANT PROPERTY FOR SALE

The vacant property that my mother had seen earlier in my life had gone fallow for the years in between. However, one day when she was passing by there was a new "For Sale" sign in front, and God told her to ask about it again.
In obedience to God, my parents approached the owners. This time, the asking price had dropped by about 2/3 putting it in range of purchase. Committing the process to God, they asked that He facilitate the sale if it was His will for me to be there.

As it happened, it was less than a month from the time my mother saw the sign until the closing!
