Life is forever changing, always evolving. So when one thinks about their own life, many things come to mind. Among things we are more likely to dream about are our goals and aspirations for our life. However, one must not forget about having fun, as well. What happens when you are thrown that unfortunate curve ball that changes your life forever? Do you throw it back? Do you keep it as a souvenir? What do you do? "My Life Is In God's Hands" tells the story of a courageous Black woman who was thrown many curve balls in life. She did not give up. Instead she used her faith in God to guide her thru life's byways and highways. Her experiences taught her, she was safe and tucked away in the mercy and blessed hands of God. Even when her life flashed before her eyes more than once, even when she had to learn to walk again more than twice, she held on to God's unchanging hands, trusting and believing that although her earthly vessel tried to leave, her spirit would always remain intact and be safe in the hands of God.
