    To live this life is to suffer your whole life as l did, not realizing that because you had a calling in your life when born. You were chosen to do special things for the Lord. But growing up did not know God fully, but instead the world ways. Evilness lerked near me causing many a fall and being alone. But God and l fought the trial off. Not knowing-- l climbed out of the pits stronger then ever. Now in the ending of my life l go out fighting for others. With the Light surrounding me, no one will touch me unless the Lord lets them. My strength comes from the Lord each day. Even though the evilness of this world trys and destroy me. I wake up another day living moment to moment walking in His Son Jesus shoes. No turning back now. I chose this fight to the end. Choose this day who you will serve. Fight to the end!!!!

    "I Have Fought The Good Battle Of Faith And I Have Finished The Race." Paul Was Not Saying As We Might Think- I Can See The Cry With Bitterness From His Heart. This Realy Makes Me Cry Because Its Very Difficult Time In Christianity. Thats Why Many People Fade. May Jesus Strengthen Us Like Paul, 254702123818
