Behold! The Look!

Woman in the Mirror

“Who do you believe you are?” She was asked this question recently and the answers varied from last week. “I’m a mother, grandmother who is alone, sad, tired, fat, homeless and disillusioned.” “Why do you believe that?” “Why?

What is next, Lord?

In 1985 the Lord came into my office and spoke audibly to me at the moment my one-year-old had stopped breathing and turned completely blue. He spoke three words to me, “Marlene, it is time,” then my knees buckled and I hit the ground in a repentance prayer. Deliverance came from many things I’m not proud nor ashamed to share with others.
