In the begining
God created me
in my mother's womb
with such love and care

My home was with God
and in God
Then at the right time
I was born

God welcomed me into the world
God celebrated and knew
it was good, very good!
Such joy on that day!

I started to explore
the world, one step
at a time
I found I could do many things

I learned to walk
I could even hold
a glass of water!
So many wonders my body could do!

God was smiling and loving me
Laughing at my little
slips and falls
Celebrating my achievements

At school I was re-introduced to God
I felt at home again
This joy of being united
made me feel like dancing

I went to church
and learned about
Jesus and the faithful
people who loved him

As I was getting older
I began to have doubts
I was being sexualy abused
and experienced many kinds of abuse

I lost faith in God and myself
I no longer felt loved or joy
I felt violated and the pain
was to much to bare

When I was at my lowest point
I knew I needed a purpose,
and questioned what I believed
I remembered where I was at home

I remembered Jesus
and asked him to forgive my sins
The love Jesus showed me
words can not express!

I had come home!
I had a yearning
a deep yearning
to follow Jesus

Becoming involved in church
Going to workshops
Praying daily, and
loving Jesus more each day

I wanted to touch others
I wanted to give away
the gifts given to me
So, I started writing
What a joy!

As I get older
I have much to learn
and want to love
Jesus and people deeply

One day,it will be the
end of my life on earth
But it will be a
begining of a new life

It will be going back home
where I started
Not in my mother's womb
but home with God for eternity!

I liked the story of life here. You have some spelling errors, but otherwise this is good.

Well done on the story of life.
Terry Walker04/28/09
Enjoyed the way you took us through your life. It will be wonderful to come full circle in this life and the one where we will be face to face with Jesus.
