I was very blessed, as Jesus Christ came into my life during my childhood. I was raised in a Christian home, and had a mother who was diligent in ensuring her children understood the importance of a life with Christ.
The actual event came on the heels of a week-long tent revival, where a few men from my Church were led to visit me at home. One of the men had a heart for children and was able to explain Jesus to me in a way that I understood. I knew that my life was to be different than the world, and I continued to have influences that reinforced my salvation experience.
God has given me hope in circumstances that many have no hope. He has given me comfort and He has healed me. God was with me during combat in the Middle East. He firmly guides me when I stray. Most importantly, I have learned to love “unconditionally” by understanding His love for me. Love has been manifested in the form of a caring wife, three strong sons, a beautiful daughter-in-law, and a perfect grandson. God’s grace and love has been heaped upon someone very unworthy. I am continually thankful.
