There was nothing beautiful about that morning on April 14, 1965, at least not the hours surrounding my birth. The truth is that it was an agonizing and painful experience.
One child destined to be born, was torn from the loins of a woman screaming and writhing in pain while her hands held tight to the blood-stained sheets.
And just when the screaming had finally stopped the doctor sternly announced, “She’s not breathing.”
Lifeless arms dangled as though they hung on a thread, while I was rushed aside for emergency CPR. One lung had already collapsed and my heart, barely the size of a gumball, stopped dead. My life was out of their hands, and it was up to my Father in Heaven to decide whether this little girl had a future on earth, or whether I would return to the safety and comfort of His unfailing arms.
Two minutes later, this girl–this lifeless girl without a single beat in her heart, was blessed. Two minutes later, I was sent into this world with a mission, “Share the power of My Word.”
He knew what I was destined to be. He knew every failure, every fault, and every act of disobedience that I’d offer to Him in the name temptation and sin. He knew the frailty of my humanity, the weakness of my flesh, and my propensity toward temptation. And yet by the goodness of His incomparable grace He planted me into the soil of this world that I might be a seed that carries the message of His immaculate Word.
Thank you for reading my words. Thank you for the grace that you give this cracked vessel each and every time you offer a word of encouragement or simply read mine.

That’s all I wanted to say… other than this… you are loved by an almighty God,
