"I lived many a year as a dead woman walking until I met the Creator who makes all things beautiful in His time. When I learned of His love and allowed Him to take me in, everything changed. He told me of His everlasting love. He drew me with loving kindness and made me aware of how wonderful we are in His eyes."

Thankfully, I am far from perfect. I still go through hard times, but now He is the difference. I know where to run to, how to get there, and most importantly, who to run to. His love never runs out. He makes us new all over again so that we can live life as a brand-new creation made in His glorious Image.
