Marked….for Purpose

I recently had a dream that took me way, way back.  In the dream, a man came towards the place I was seated and said “I was looking for you”. My response, since I didn’t recognize the man, “you don’t know me so who are you looking for?”  His response, “Show me your hand” which I did.

I was brought up Catholic and up until University; all I knew about God and Faith was based on the Catholic teachings.  I have shared in a previous blog that at some point in my life I got deep into Catholicism and I am certain it saved my life. Literally! I was under such severe oppression at an early age because of a lineage which came with heavy spiritual obligations. Let me park that issue right there as it is not the subject of this blog.
