“I will have purpose; I will live day by day with meaning; I will be someone to be proud of. Not for you, but for God. In an instant of a heartbeat, I had a sudden glimpse of understanding, and more importantly, acceptance. I know not where God wants me, but I know now that my path has been shown; and my journey begins.” -KwB.
