I met God up close and personal in my own backyard, when I was all by myself, asking Him if He would save a Praying Mantis. I heard His audible voice speak to me, as I made a promise to Him. I was 10 years old. After that moment in time, I was forever changed, I just did not know it at that time in the summer of 1972.
The gap in between 1972 and 1995, I was living and experiencing Life, I don't remember anything specific about God. Just that looking back now, I was able to learn to be me.
In 1995 when I was 33 years of age, God really started getting my attention. I wanted to experience Him, like I did when I was 10. I wanted a closer relationship with Him. So, I started searching and seeking for more. And little by little He taught me, and lead me to learn about who He is. I learned everything that I needed to from Him, and today, I am still learning, only today I am 57 years of age and have walked with Him a long time. I could not imagine living life without Him by my side 24/7/365.
Every year for the past 24 years, I got closer to Him, knew more about Him and now let Him lead and guide my life. For I would not want it any other way.
