"Faith can't be taught... it can only be caught." - Wendy V.

FAITH IS OUR GREATEST GIFT
I do not consider myself to be a person anyone would come to talk
to about faith. I have a life full of experiences that probably
should have led me closer to God. As an addict, I have overdosed,
and I've had serious car crashes that could have been fatal.
These near death experiences did open my eyes. I felt grateful to
be alive, but it's amazing how soon after these incidents, that I
was right back to using drugs again. After I got clean, I always
wondered why I had so many wake-up calls. In my years of active
addiction, many people were hurt by my actions. One family
member, in particular, was my grandmother. I was clean for a
couple of years, and she was getting up there in her years. I was
fortunate to be able to spend some time with her before she
passed on. Most of the time we spent together was me just
listening to her talk. She had an interesting life. One day I
asked her a question about how she could still love me after all
the problems I'd caused her. Her answer touched my heart. She
said she loved all of her grandchildren. Most of them were able
to accept her love. I could not. She said she was going to
continue loving me until I could learn to accept her love. My
faith may have been weakened many times in my life, but God's
love for me has never diminished. He spoke to me that day
thorough my grandmother.

"Faith is to believe what you do not see: the reward of this
faith is to see what you believe."- St Augustine
