I believe there is a God and that He is gracious, forgiving, loving and wants the absolute best for me!

I believe there is a God for many reasons but the best reason I have for this belief came in the form of a prayer over 36 years ago.

I was in a turmoil in my life, choosing dark paths to fill the emptiness in my life. I was going nowhere, fast. I needed someone in my life to help, guide and love me and I saw no one who wanted to be with me.

So, in prayer, I asked God to help lead me to someone who could love and be with me. I said, “Lord, if I can’t find someone soon to love and be with me, I will end my life. I just can’t stand it anymore!”

The very next day I was introduced to a wonderful and caring man and 8 months later we were married and still are!

That is why I believe there is a loving and caring God!
