Testimony of saving faith for Christians only
Christ is my Savior and I want to please God in every facet of my life. I praise Him for being the merciful and loving God that He is. I believe strongly in the power of prayer and am thankful for that special communication with my heavenly Father. I hope my life exemplifies the Christian spirit so that others will see Jesus in me and will want Him in their lives as well. I love my heavenly Father and look forward to the day I will meet Him face to face and the day I will be reunited with my son, Brandon, who passed away March 6, 2009 at the age of 29 yrs.
About the Poet
I am a Christan mother, grandmother, wife, aspiring poet, and owner of a bed and breakfast with my husband of 37 years. I love to create an ambience of serenity in my home. I love soft music, the sounds of the birds in my yard, the whir of the ceiling fans,...
Time has passed since the first time I wrote my Poet Bio...it has been three years now....in that time my life has changed drastically. We lost our beloved youngest child, our only son, to suicide. It has been devastating...shaking my faith to its core but not destroying it. I have not been inspired to write for quite some time now. I pray that I will be able to emerge from this pain and write with a new passion about my journey. Until that time I ask for prayers and that God will continue to speak to me and give me the peace that passes all understanding.
