I am a Christian with a past…I guess we all have a past, and more than likely, mine isn’t much different than most. Four sisters and an older brother enhanced the broken home I grew up in; I fell right in the middle. My upbringing had plenty of love, but there was little if no mention of Jesus. That being said, somehow we considered ourselves a Christian family.
I was born in the mid sixties and made my way through the seventies. The eighties were my autopilot years, and my flesh was in control of my actions. All I will say about that is, it is not a good place to be! My journey took an upswing when I married my wonderful wife Stephanie in 1990…she is my best friend.
As strange as it may seem, Stephanie and I did not fully know each others beliefs when we married. In truth, we were both a bit lost when it came to a spiritual connection to God. The power of this in our relationship was the yearning we both had to gain a relationship with the All Mighty. It is a process that has allowed us to grow in faith together…and that has been powerful!
We were given the gift of three precious souls to care for, Dalton, Dylan and my late daughter Angelica (my Angel Girl) who ascended to the heavens on June 29, 2010. She is my inspiration for this online journal. Her passing has me looking at my journey from a different perspective, and the need to share it has risen to the surface.
So, who am I to teach, instruct, witness, or even give these written words for you to consume? My answer…I am just me with my own history of experience. My journey which encompasses all of my mistakes, failures, triumphs and tragedy enlighten my perspective and it is mine to share. It is my hope there is something in my sharing that strikes your spirit with reflection and discovery in your own walk. In truth, your journey has its own account of events that have shaped your point of view, and I have no doubt that you have something to teach, instruct and witness to as well. And so I write…
In loving memory of Angelica Rae…my Angel Girl
