My story with God
My life as I knew it was gone...so I thought. I hit rock bottom. I prayed - God please help me. He did! The Holy Spirit came into my heart immediatley. I - at that moment - understood what a "man" dying on a cross to save me meant. I was filled with a joy and peace that I had looked for all of my life. It was definitely the best thing that ever happened to me. I wanted to tell the whole world...I understand now...and tell them so they would know where complete joy and peace was to be found...instead of wasting so much time looking in all the wrong places. Praise the Lord!
Other stuff about me:
I love being around my grandchildren and my Christian friends. I love the ocean and all of God's creation. I have a calling for foreign missions - Nicaragua. I know what poverty is now. I found out that no matter how poor you think you are living in the US..you are extremely rich..compared to the people in Nicaragua.
I have a wonderful husband that has also been called to go into Nicaragua and spread the gospel.
I live so far in the boondocks that light has to be filtered in! I still have dial-up internet...we cannot get DSL in our area. I love living in the country...but would like to live near a store in case I am cooking and have put all ingredients in except the last one and realize I have none and it takes an hour to get anywhere to purchase it...then I would like to live in town. I have a little Maltese named Lexie.
One book is done. I'm working on 6 others.
