About Me Faith-filled, focused on God and His love and my need of His mercy; very emotionally sensitive, able to tell when someone else is feeling down, too and wanting to comfort that person. I love humor,animals,nature,and life. Sometimes I don't understand the meanness of people toward each other. It's no mystery to me that the world is at war constantly when I see how individuals treat each other on the road, in the grocery store, in their own families...

Wild Fact About Me I'm one of a set of natural born triplets (no hormones or fertility treatments - we were real! LOL).
My Philosophy "It is hard to stand up for right when you have everything to lose." (Attribution Unknown)
And a quote we all need to keep in mind forever:

First they came for the communists, and I did not speak out--
because I was not a communist;
Then they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out--
because I was not a socialist;
Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out--
because I was not a trade unionist;
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out--
because I was not a Jew;
Then they came for me--
and there was no one left to speak out for me.

(Auf Deutsch): (The Original)
Als die Nazis die Kommunisten holten,
habe ich geschwiegen;
ich war ja kein Kommunist.
Als sie die Sozialdemokraten einsperrten,
habe ich geschwiegen;
ich war ja kein Sozialdemokrat.
Als sie die Gewerkschafter holten,
habe ich nicht protestiert;
ich war ja kein Gewerkschafter.
Als sie die Juden holten,
habe ich nicht protestiert;
ich war ja kein Jude
Als sie mich holten,
gab es keinen mehr,
der protestieren konnte.
- Pastor Martin Niemöller
What Gives Me Hope God's promise of an eternal life after physical death where there will be no tears or sorrow or pain anymore. Eternal union with God, embraced by His mercy and love.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by I would stop the holocaust of abortion, make adoption in the US easier by removing needless and excessive red tape and bureaucratic hoops potential parents are made to jump through (which is why they go to China or other foreign countries to adopt - it's easier - while our own "unwanted" children languish in foster homes, getting passed through the system like pawns by CPS until they're too old to be adopted by a family who would have loved to raise them from infancy.. I would make emotional and financial help available for those struggling with such the decision of abortion, and try to change all hearts to see it for what it is: murder. I would stand up for the lives of these little ones because they can't speak for themselves and they have a right to live, too.
What/who changed my life and why The Bible and The 7-book series The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis because both speak about God's love and forgiveness and acceptance of each of us, in spite of our sins when we return to Him. God is loving, merciful, and healing. Like Jesus, Aslan (a Christ figure) loves us so much that he died for Edmund, a traitor so that the evil White Witch would not kill Edmund. Yet he rose from the dead and triumphed over evil and ended the perpetual winter in Narnia. Both books speak of God's amazing love for each of us and willingness to take us back after we have sinned and repented. Jesus has saved me like Aslan saved Edmund in the Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. I never deserved His love but He still loves me, in spite of myself.

Role Models  
Quotation Wrong will be right when Aslan comes in sight. At the sound of his roar sorrows will be no more. When he bares his teeth winter meets its death, and when he shakes his mane, spring shall come again.
