Today's testimony is shared by a woman I greatly admire. She is filled with strength and the Holy Spirit. While we never "chat" online I pray for every request she shares and rejoice in all her blessings.
This is the short version to my testimony- I married my best friend and love of my life Tim Bailey in 1994. We moved to Louisville, Ky so he could attended seminary from 1994-1999. He graduated and took his first pastorate in a town outside of Savannah Ga. We had dreamed about having a large family but it was determined that I could not conceive. God had other plans. We adopted 3 wonderful blessings- Dylan, Christopher and William in 2000- Then in 2004 we adopted my little angel Caitlyn. In that same year we were called to serve at a church in Ware Shoals, Sc. We had only been there for 4 months when Tim drowned while saving 2 of our children. It has been a challenge to be a widowed mom of 4 children but God has blessed us. We have a variety of pets. A Catholoho Leopard dog, Balto, a Shih tzu, Ashley, and a puppy from her (Ashley's) 2nd liter, Allie, born March 19- Tim's b-day. I am active in my church. I also Homeschool my children- which is a blessing and a challenge!
Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her 26 to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word, 27 and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless.
