A Wing and a Prayer (My Life)
Wing and a Prayer
Who I am
My life has always been on a wing and a prayer and through God's Grace I am able to share with you, who I really am and what drives me to be all that I can be. My life will help you understand who I am and why I choose to make the decisions that I make, or the comments that may unfold when it comes to judging others.
I have written a handful of articles on HubPages and today of all days, I thought it was time to tell you who I am , the woman behind the keyboard who enjoys helping others and sharing my thoughts. I am a E.R. Nurse, I am a mother and I am a wife. I have a strong love for the Lord and I am also open minded about others, thoughts, desires and lifestyles. I believe that everyone should be treated equal and nobody is better then someone else.
Being a defiant young woman and in college I refused to ask my parents for anything and in ended up on the streets in California among the darkness and evil that roams it. I have seen things that nobody could ever imagine, and was also witness to a murder in which the man who took the person's life ended up in prison for life and it still haunts me to this day. I have been raped and I have been beaten by an ex-husband and left for dead. Through it all I have kept my faith, my husband now is my rock and is amazed that through my life experiences it has not hardened me. Many of you may say God she must of being Naive and stupid , she was not cautious, I was young and therefore I was naive but I was far from being an idiot. I was in Mensa and I am actually quite intelligent and chose to make others feel comfortable around me, I have been told how beautiful I am but choose to believe that I am not any better then anyone else. The Avatar's resemblance to me, is almost dead on, which is eerie and for self-protected reasons due to the rape I choose to leave the Avatar the way it is, as who knows he may be reading my article now. Have I forgiven him yes and I have moved on as I know that God is their for me. I have been at the bottom and rose to the top and my faith will not falter or fail me. All of us have been through things in our lives but as a person who loves to write and I hope to publish my first book next year, I hope now that you will realize who I am, I am not a saint and I am not perfect, I am just like you , I am human, I love life and I love the Lord. I have gone through troubled times and I understand people's thoughts, feelings and emotions and I cannot judge others as I have walked in some of their shoes. I am not a snob, I am a giving caring person and I do know that God has a divine purpose for me, so sharing my life to you and expressing my thoughts has even made me a better person, for sharing with you who I am.
I have a prayer that I recite every morning and it was written by "Jack Piatt, I was able to actually meet him many years ago and he sent this prayer to me that he wrote which hangs in our hallway as a reminder of who God is to me.
To wake and say, "Good Morning God."
As you watched over me through the night, Please guide my thoughts and actions, thru this day keep me in sight.
I'll need your constant company, Less I feel so all alone. Please guide my every decision, for I can't make it on my own.
If I can do for one of yours and they not know my face, And say, "my Lord how lucky I am," Then will I know your grace,
When others paths look smoother and my neighbors load seems light And I feel no envy in my heart, my goal will be in sight.
Where I to quietly give to a stranger, Something I could not replace and did so in your name alone, I but sample of your grace.
My prayer's to help another, Though it wasn't on my way. And at evening say,"good night my Lord, I thank you for this say.
