I'm Chris, I'm 59, divorced, have three adult daughters who have all married and gone their own way, and I was born into a lapsed Christian family. I have finally, after 4 years of reading about Islam, decided that Islam is for me. It was a huge decision to make, well, it felt huge to me, but once I decided that this is the path I wish to travel, suddenly I knew beyond the shadow of a doubt that it is the right decision. Today, after my Asr prayers, I will travel out of town to meet with a sister who will spend time answering all my questions, explaining anything I am unclear about. I have to say that never have I had such a warm welcome!
I am nervous, I'm excited, and I was trying to work out what that feeling was similar to, earlier today. Do you remember when you were about to leave home for your first day in your first ever job? You couldn't wait to begin, but there was still that nagging worry that you wouldn't measure up. That is exactly how I feel. The difference is that I know deep within me that this is the best decision I have ever made in my entire life!
