    He is a faithful God. Call on him in time of need and He will surely come to your aid. He niether sleeps or slumbers. Giving my life to Jesus is the best thing that ever happened to me. May yours be better as you take that step. Psalm 23 always lifts up my spirit when i am overwhelmed.

    I know that The Lord is my Shepherd. For 7 1/2 hours during a Posterial Laminectomy Surgery I was in the shadow
    of death. God carried me all the way. Didn't know that I was in the World. Like the good Shepherd He took care of
    me and guided the Doctors and Medical Staff. Surely "goodness and mercy " follows me each day of my life.
    Still recovering , but I am thankful.
