Jesus Christ has been my Savior for 44 years. Robert, the wonderful man that God provided to love me has been my husband for 42 of those years. We have four children, all grown, several with children of their own. Of course that means that we have grandchildren - 10 to be exact, and three great granddaughters. I have been a stay-at-home mom, sometimes helping to supplement the income from within the home. Now I am a stay-at-home grandmother. Jesus Christ has been my guide and keeper and I have found, in all the trials, heartbreaks and good times that He just keeps getting sweeter and sweeter as the years roll by. My future is secure and I look forward to eternity in the presence of my Creator, Redeemer and King.
