I really like the word reflection. It has so many facets. I guess writing this blog is a way for me to look into the depths of “what the Lord has done for me.” Like most, life was not all a bowl of cherries or a bed or roses. Howdy and I were church going folks. We were active in our local church in Havelock, N.C. and more so in Virginia Beach, Va. Howdy was a Capt. in the Marine Corps and we were the ideal couple. The handsome Marine Capt., his lovely wife and three handsome sons. On the outside we looked good but on the inside we were hurting. Howdy and I came close to divorce at this point. We had been married 11 years and about to call it quits. It was at this time that the Lord Jesus Christ moved upon Howdy. He was at a meeting of the worship committee. During the meeting the Holy Spirit came into the room and everyone was changed. Howdy came home and got on his knees in front of me and told me he had asked God into his life and he wanted us to stay together. Wow! I had no idea what all of this meant but I loved this man so very much. Oh, so very much. This was really the beginning of a journey. A journey of finding who we were as a family, as a couple and as individuals. This was in August of 1968. I have learned so much since then I have also made a lot of mistakes. I hope that I learn a principle of God each and every day. I want to be an example or reflection of the Grace of God. More later.
