"Life is not about what you cannot do because of circumstances out of your control. Success comes when you recognize what you can do with what God has given you."

Background Information


 I’ve weathered tornadoes of pain during my lifetime. When I was 32, Retinitis Pigmentosa robbed me of my eyesight and winds of anguish thrust me into emotional darkness. I was tempted to sink into self-pity and stay there.

The adversity intensified with marital infidelity and financial hardship. Then, years later, another storm buffeted me, bringing even greater heartache. My son, Joe, was tragically killed in a senseless altercation. Hoping for justice, I endured the trial of the man responsible. But to our astonishment, he was acquitted of all charges.

“How unfair,” I screamed inside.

Resentment, anger and sorrow threatened to consume me. Lost in my heartache, I groped in desperation. Finally, I turned to God, and He unlocked a new world for me through the verse that says, “Seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things will be given to you as well” (Matthew 6:33).

I clung to that reassurance and, one step at a time, gained strength, received comfort and rekindled the drive to keep going.

Amigas, if God gave me 20/20 spiritual vision, He’ll also heal the darkness you face.

If He brought love back into our marriage, He’ll mend yours, too.

If He brought peace after the death of my son, He’ll heal your broken heart, too.

If He helped me to forgive the man who killed our son, He’ll open the path for you to know the freedom of forgiveness, too.
