I would like to share with you, a favorite quote.
I would like to share with you why this quote came to my mind. I have lived in San Marcos six months. I have wanted to become involved in our community. At the time there seemed to be no interest in what I tried. After I had visited one of my neighbors and returned to my apartment, neighbors were knocking on my door. My neighbors came and entered we began to chat. We will be meeting weekly to pray, explore, and share our wisdom and spirituality with each other.
I believe everyone listened as I recounted how I am healing since I came to Unity. I believe I have been led here for a reason not yet known to me. I do believe in miracles. I have been experiencing more healing in my toes as I can move them more now and I have some more ankle movement. The changes are subtle but I know the damage the polio vaccine did to me. My Dad also had polio and spent 3 ½ years in an iron lung. Yet an Army buddy home on leave took my Dad to a church in Philadelphia and the rest is history because he walked out without his braces and crutches. When his mother saw him after returning home she fainted. My point that day is that we witness miracles all the time and we don’t always notice them.
I would like to share a short excerpt from my memoir which now is an unpublished book. Let me set up this excerpt so you have some sort of idea what is happening. I won a cruise to the Bahamas for two. I could not find anyone to go with me. I tried and finally a nurse who worked with me jumped at the chance. She wasn’t my choice to go. She was God’s choice. God chose her for me for a reason unknown to me. We both went on the cruise. It became known to me why she had to go. I was constantly asking and demanding from God why I had to come on the cruise. All my questions were answered on the cruise and after it when I returned home.
The memoir now a book was never published. I am writing another book on animals in story form. Below is the excerpt I shared with Rev. Gary. From the moment I entered Unity, I felt that I was home and could feel the movement of the Spirit.
“Why me God? What do you want from me? I kept asking God why? Why am I here in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean? OK God, I want an answer. I had this experience which I will never forget. I felt a presence behind me. I turned around thinking someone wanted to speak to me. But no one was there. I turned back to continue watching the beautiful sunset. I felt that same feeling again like someone was behind me. Once again I turned around only to find no one behind me. Then I felt someone come up behind me and put their arms around me and hug me tightly. Then I heard the words “because I love you” very clearly in my mind. I asked my question again and I got the same response. A tremendous peace filled me at that moment.
Every evening after dinner I returned to the same spot on the deck of the ship to pray and talk to Jesus. Every night I experienced the same feeling. On Sunday night, I told Him how much I enjoyed myself. Then I heard these words “I love you.” Since this cruise, I have experienced this same feeling on many different occasions in my life.”
