Hmmmm, What makes me me? Now that is an interesting question. I guess God makes me me. I mean God has made me who I was from the cradle. As each trial came, I found something new to help me through. When God made me He gave me the ability to withstand all the stuff I've had to. I mean, it was always there, I just discovered it when I needed it.
I was molested as a girl, several times. God gave me what I needed to get through that. I had a birth defect in my spine. God gave me what I needed to get through that. I have been married and divorced 3 times. God gave me what I needed to get through that. I got cancer, and God gave me what I needed to get through that.
He has also given me what I need to sustain me through life as it happens every day. Whether I'm prepared for it or not, He is!
So when I say God made me who I am, I mean that he gave me strength and courage to keep on getting up every day. I know that what ever life and this world throw at me, I can handle it. As long as I continue to believe "With God all things are possible". Nothing is endured alone. God is always there. So somewhere along the way I realized that, among other things, God gave me strength, character, love, joy, peace, creativity, and a sense of humor so I could endure it all, and still be able to laugh! Thank you Father God!
