I was born in a fairly small county in North Carolina, and born
at home, with a midwife friend of my parents on hand to help with the delivery. I came out a bouncy healthy baby, number 6 in a family of 7. I was raised in a poor home, my father was a tenant farmer and actually he worked for his wealthy brother and worked on his farm on which we lived on.
I was born in a two story house 5 room house, without a bathroom or running water.
Today I am grandmother to 4 wonderful grandchildren. I have 3 boys, Kyle(20), Christopher(11) and Jason (7). Just last
Thanksgiving, November 23, 2007, God blessed my daughter and her husband with a beautiful little girl, Taylor Nicole.
Taylor was born 3 months premature and fought quite a battle for life. Many, Many prayers went up for her and we call
her our Miracle Baby. I have written several poems about and for Taylor and they are on Shy's Corner of Blessings. She is now 16 months old and doing great..
I have been playing piano and organ since I was a child about 10 years old. My grandmother encouraged me very much to learn and I did have 9 months of lessons. The Lord gave me a great gift for music. I read notes as well as play songs by ear.
Before I was stricken with Fibromyalgia, I enjoyed singing as well, and have been in a few music groups, nothing PRO, just sang locally and for the glory of the Lord.
Now my main activity is making pages for my websites, and writing poetry, which I love immensely. I love to surf the internet to find new Christian sites and I enjoy finding and visiting graphic sites as well. Unlike some of my friends who have websites, I have not learned the art of making beautiful graphics, maybe one day.
I also endeavor to support the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, as well as offer information on this site for those of us who have Fibromyalgia.
I am involved in a couple of prayer groups, which is a great ministry on the internet. I love meeting new people and I love witnessing for Jesus Christ. I also have a heart for the elderly, in the past I ministered in music and devotionals in nursing and assisted living homes. Fibromyalgia has since prevented me from participating like I used to do.
I am happy with my life and want to do my best to be a witness for Jesus, that others can see Him in me. I do not claim to be perfect in anyway, I am just a sinner saved by grace. I am a member of a Baptist church and attend as my health allows.
So there you have it, my life as it is, and love for Christ and furthering His work...........God Bless, Shy
