“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.  In all your ways acknowledge Him.  And He will make your path straight.”  Proverbs 3:5-6

I was raised in a Catholic home and attended Catholic grade school.   By world standards, I had it made.  My husband worked hard and became very successful.  We had a nice house, two cars and five children.  As he traveled a great deal, most of the responsibility for caring for the children and home were mine.  Loneliness and fear turned into anger, resentment, bitterness, and finally depression.  We were drifting apart, and I didn’t know how to stop it.

I remember calling my brother John, telling him how badly I felt.  I was missing Mass, something I never did.  I just didn’t care anymore.  I was so empty.  He told me I needed Jesus in my life and to actually know Him personally.  He spoke of Jesus like He was his best friend.  I really wanted to know Jesus just like John did.  He led me in the sinners’ prayer.  I invited Jesus into my heart to be my Lord and Savior.

Things started to change.  I had a real sense that I had a lot more to be thankful for than not.  He turned my anger and resentment into peace and love.  He melted away my bitterness.  He took my fear and loneliness away and taught me how to love and trust again through His love.  I’m forever grateful.  He brought me from death to life!
