light my path from the wicked darkness of my past.
Reading, researching anything (the fun is in finding facts), loom knitting and playing with my grandson.

My story with God
I considered myself a christian until 7 months ago when my life was turned upside down. Although, I did not attend church regularly or read the bible as often as I should, I felt being a "good" person meant something. How wrong I was. I had everything, a beautiful home, a great job, money, travel and I never once gave God credit for the blessings he gave me. Then, I lost it all and more. I felt so lost and afraid. One day I was getting eyeglasses and as I was leaving, I saw a bookstore and felt compelled to see what books might be on sale or an author I might like. As I was wondering through the store, I happened upon the religious section. I had always wanted a NIV bible so that I could study and understand God's word. I purch ased the bible (I only had $74 in the bank and the bible cost $35 and not expecting another check for 2 weeks). I read each day joyfully and take comfort in His word. Now, I have found a home church that has made me feel like one of their own. Upon waking, I rejoice and pray each day how blessed I am that the Lord has given me another day to share with Him. I started reading the bible from the beginning and will read through to the end. Many of my worldly positions have been stripped, yet I am more wealthy than I ever have been because of my Savior's Gift of everlasting life.
