I have several pictures on this website of my Grandmother aka Grandma
Mary Frances Coley on my Mother's side of the family, whereas I lived with my
Grandma Coley as far back as I can remember until I graduated
from High School in 1964. My Mom and Pop lived next door during this time
and my Grandma "conned" my Mom into letting me live with her. I mentioned
her quite a bit in the short story titled
"Memories From The Past"
in this section and it does the spirit good to reflect back in time especially
on very memorable and happy times and events that has a positive influence on
our personal lives.
Whether one believes in God as our creator or a higher being or void of any
meaningful belief , I can only
answer for myself that through my faith in God through Jesus Christ our Lord and
Savior, I need no other evidence than the
Word of God and the spirit that
lives within to be and remain a believer!
The below .mp3 file gives an account of something that happened in my
personal life in 1982 that shows just how much God is concerned about our
happiness and well being. I do not try and explain what happened, I just
relate what took place. After making the audio cassette from the reel to
reel tape, it was not long afterward (a couple months) that my Uncle Douglas Ross Coley died and
the audio cassette of my Grandma was a comfort to the entire family. I
played the tape of Grandma to Uncle Doug not long after I transferred it from
the reel to reel to a cassette tape and he really enjoyed hearing his Mother and
asked why I did not let him hear it sooner? I told him that I had just found
the tape. Uncle Doug was deeply touched and comforted and things do happen
for a specific reason whether we believe it or not!
