I have always been a writer.  For most of my life I haven’t written for people to read.  I put pen to paper because I was made in the image of a God who used words to call this world into existence, and He used words to call me to Himself.  Before I was formed in my mother’s womb He breathed into me a mind and heart for reading and writing.  Out of all the talents He could have given He chose a spirit that yearns to take twenty-six symbols and turn them over and over again into pages of what I’ve never considered an ordinary story.  Once in a while, when I would let them slip out into the universe, people told me what I wrote was a gift and asked me if I would please do it more.   I’m just now barely brave enough to put my name on it.

    God is so big He can cover the whole word with His love, and so small He can curl up inside your heart. June Masters Bacher

    We are surrounded by God’s “miracles” every day – some are easy to miss if we aren’t looking; others are so huge we can’t ignore them. So very, very happy you and Danica are two walking, breathing miracles – you have no idea how much you give to others who are hurting while hanging onto hope. Prayers always. luvu
