I am not a great minister who has read God’s word to thousands packed into football stadiums, I am not Mother Theresa who has given my entire life to serving the under privileged. I am just another child of God who has tried, since I was just a small child, to live my life in a way that would make God smile. I fail far more often than I succeed, but those failures have taught me that the love and mercy of God surpasses the love and mercy of even the most loving human parent. I was married for 19 1/2 years. Around the 15th year, my spouse suffered a traumatic brain injury in a car accident, and my life was never the same again. I am the mother of two amazing adults, the mother-in-law of a truly wonderful man of God, the grandmother of three precious and beautiful angels, and my son is about to marry a beautiful, Christian young woman that I already love dearly.
