Growing up I had asumed I knew what life would be like when I turned 51 the second half of my life. Wow I never thought I would make it this long. Satan had his chances long ago to remove me from this life. From birth, I was born in March 9, 1964 at 10:02 am. Two months early, I always have been the type to run where angels fear to tread. I weighed a massive 3lbs 5oz. wow, the doctors gave me less than 50% chance of living, but God! When I was in the Navy, I injured my shoulder in bootcamp so after a year of pain the doctor wanted to look. I had a simple scope procedure, it went great till it was time to start to wake me. They pulled the breathing tube from my throat and I was supposed to breath, however, I was not awake so my brain and lungs said breath but my throat said no so we had problems. I had a negitive pressure pulmanary edema wow what a mouthfull. Well they had to put the tube back so they had to paralyse me. Well that stopped everything, heart, lungs etc. Out comes the paddles you know the one…clear…zap!!! Well I came back after being dead for 4 minutes. One more time then I will move on, I was due to be ordained as a Bishop well the day came and I took my Mother with me to Pennsylvania. It was a snowy day, I was started to get off at my exit when I saw in the distace a truck pulling off the road and I saw why. It was a big dully bucket truck and he lost a wheel. I am going 60 to try to get out of the way, like a torpedo at my miada! It hit my front wheel and I went airborn 15 feet! I landed hard but I down shifted and kept control of the car. Pulled over and started shaking bad, looked at the car and did not look bad but later I learned how bad it was. We drove home in the rain very slowly. I put the car in the shop and they doubted me. Three weeks later I get the car back with apologies. He asked me how high I went to do the damage he thought 15 feet. God looked over me and my mother. Satan did not want me to get my Ordination that night, but I did and God gets the glory.
Now I have a great wife, job and dog lol. I am doing well, God has blessed me with all this and a ministry that I am just starting to walk in after 25 years. I am truly excited for the next 51 years, hmm I guess that truly makes me middle age now :). Blessings.
