Tis beautiful, God puts us through so much the more we lean to him the more we are persecuted But this is only to make us stronger and wiser as we grow in the Lord.

Dear All, I'm not sure the reason why but for some reason I really feel I need to share this with all of you. My life is so different today, so much better than it was a short time ago, not to say that I don't have problems to face daily. There are still issues in my life I struggle with but there is nothing in my life that God and I can not get through together and even when I thought my life was for naught, when just getting out of bed and facing a new day seemed almost to much a challenge, God was there, even when I couldn't see it and I surely didn't understand. Not so long ago my life was such a mess I thought I'd never see the light again. I thought I was just plain NO GOOD, that no good would ever be found in me, my life was for naught. I was terribly in debt, I'd lost my home, my marriages were all total failures, I was an embarrassment to my family, my kids were at odds with me, my friends, those I really loved and cared about seemed to have deserted me, the very bottom was falling out of my life and even though I had tried, I really had, my life seemed to be falling apart, wasting away to nothingness...God had seen me through so much, I'd leaned on Him and now even God seemed to be deserting me and I felt like Job must have felt when all he cared about was being destroyed before his very eyes...Then one day I came upon a scene that I suppose most folks might have bearly noticed and most times so would have I but this day it leaped out at me like a sermon...God works in the most mysterious ways. I'm still a very long way from perfect and life is still a long ways from grand by the world's standards but today I wake up each morning glad for another day, happy to just be alive. The littlest things have suddenly become wonderful blessings and I have learned to appreciate life and being alive so much more. God's grace is my sufficiency. PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING POEM. Love and Blessings, Annie
