My Tree of Life Story
December 15, 2015 is etched in my mind as the most difficult and painful time of my entire life … the day I got the call that my beautiful son, Darien Miles was in a fatal motorcycle accident in Florida. The days that followed are a blur as waves upon waves of grief crashed all around me. It was during this time of deepest pain that my loving Father drew me to Him. It was He who now held my precious son in His embrace just as He held my wounded soul. This “Tree of Life” grew from that pain.
It represents my journey through the grief with all the twists and turns, the sharp and painful edges that life can bring … not just from this one tragedy but from each one of my life’s experiences. Because I’m deeply rooted in the center of this beautiful tree signifying my relationship with my Lord and Savior, I remain unshakeable because my foundation is steady and sure. I trust HIM for guidance as my journey continues and even in the middle of the MESS!! My total trust is a fitting response to GOD’S amazing LOVE! “LOVE AWAKENS THE SOUL”!!
