The Beginning

I was born of a godly woman. My mother was a devoted prayer and church goer. Because of that I was blessed. I was clothed, fed, nurtured, and loved. My walk through was on the way.
I grew up in neighborhoods safe to walk in, playgrounds nearby to play in. People watching our for each other. Because of that I was blessed.
The good beginning did not keep me from making a mess of my life at times.Those times are made me stronger in my faith and trust in God.
I'm a senior citizen so I've been walking a long time through this life of mine. As I continue my walk I know God is with me. He always was in the past and will be as I continue my walk. He was there when I took wrong turns,when I was stubborn and would not do the right thing, and when grief over took me. Because of that I'm blessed.

Amen! It's as if you took a page from my book. He has been with us forever and will forever be! Please keep writing, I enjoyed your piece, and would like to read more about your blessings. God Bless.

This is a lovely testimony. You definitely covered the topic and I know many people can relate to this.

My biggest suggestion would be to give me more. I was intrigued and wanted to keep reading.

I believe many could learn from your past messes. I know it's difficult to bear your soul to complete strangers but you did that and it was good. I have no doubt God has plans for you so keep writing! Nice job.
