I was born in Atlanta and never really considered living anywhere else. I did live in many areas of Atlanta including East Atlanta, Stone Mountain, Tucker, Chamblee, Marietta, Smyrna, Lithonia, and Cumming. It wasn't until my daughter Katie graduated from high school did we decide to move to Hartwell, GA... the place of my mother's birth.
When I was about 12 years old, I read a tract and prayed to receive Jesus Christ as my Savior. I remember the tract was mostly white with something red or pink on the front. Maybe a rose. I remember thinking about how smart I was for making this decision, which is not what I should have been thinking, but it was that vivid that I remember those thoughts. When I was older and looking back at a few times that I had gotten off-track, I wondered when it was that I really was converted. Recently, I came across a Bible that I had when that took place and most of it was underlined. I remember that I did have a great desire to read scripture and it excited me to read it.
...more to come.
