Humiliated the pesky lonely church lady in my neighborhood. G
I am the church vocalist and help out my neighborhood as a handyman after work. This one lady lost both her parents, her boyfriend out west, and her child and brother moved away. She was needy and always hugging me and hiring me to work on her house after church. Her neediness was embarrassing me in front of the congregation. Although I enjoyed the extra money working as a handyman in her home after church. Men in my position singing at church always get clingers like this. She was formerly a model, so she thought she was the cats meow.
Anyway, her being in the neighborhood, ours, but she said she lived within that 3 mile radius her entire time in Florida since she was 5. Anyway, the pastor and I decided we had to get rid of her.
Next time she texted for handyman chores, I came over and told her I was in love with her. I took her outside Under the trees to tell her, thought it would scare her away. She seemed very shaken and I just walked off to home. Then she texted me and told me she loved me too but would have to go away to pray about it. After her text, I told her I had to tell my wife. The lady said she would go away and see what she thought about it. She said she couldn't believe I betrayed her and put her in danger. I had to act as if I'd never told her I loved her; I had to protect myself.
Needless to say, my wife had a fit and spread it around the church and neighborhood and people started bullying the church women. My wife even had her banned from reading at the community pool in the evening and embarrassed away from the neighborhood picnic. When she tried to read at the pool, she said the police were going to ban her from her own pool. The the day of the neighborhood banquet, she heard my wife gossiping about her and the church lady left with her plate to the neighborhood lake and one of my wife's bullies took her by the collar and pulled her away from the lake and said she was spying on me and he was calling the police.
Then the church lady drove by our house on her way to visit a shut in. She beeped and waved and my wife went crazy yelling. Called the church lady a groupie that just laid around thinking about me. My wife was screaming with her hands in the air turning in circles. I let her get it out of her system. I didn't get in the middle. Church lady drove away, but I saw an ambulance taking her away that night. I couldn't stick up for her. I hadn't wanted anyone to really know I said I loved her. I could have lost my house and kids.
Anyway, we had the neighbors pester her enough, she moved. We pranked her out of the neighborhood and last I heard she's had leukemia for 3 years and takes bad chemo every day.
I believe God punished her harshly for falling for His servant, me.
And always calling me in need so much. I did enjoy the extra money and attention. It's her fault, she was always hugging on me and calling me to the house to fix something. In the beginning after it al happened, I was just trying to save myself. But as the years go by, I miss her terribly. She's the only one who treated me right. Turns out the prank was on me. My wife made me feel lonely and she treats me without respect. I was mean to that church woman and publicly judgemental in her time of need. We male servants of God are supposed to help women alone in time of need, but my wife was so mean, I couldn't think straight. She made it all about her. Our entire marriage is about her. I now have deep feelings of love for the other women. That must be my punishment from God for all this. We literally destroyed a women during a harsh mourning period on her life when she needed our guidance. I will never forgive myself. It's not so funny now. Sorry Pam :(
