    Hello everyone!
    It is so good to be here! I am a wife, Mom, and Grandma. Retired Army, and I work part time in a retail place.
    My parents were Catholics, so I was raised in the the Catholic Church. Later in my later 20's I began questioning some issues and found my heart's home within a Baptist Church. My parents were quite upset with my decision but God allowed them to understand and accept the Church I chose.
    Going against my parents, who were always my best friends, was not an easy issue.
    But they trusted me and so we still were so very close and loving until their passing.
    I was torn apart when my parents passed. Daddy in 1996, Mommy in 2002. My Mommy's last words were: "Never lose faith. Remember that, and I love you."
    Then she slipped away.
    God is so real to me. He knows what is right for me and He hears my prayers, always.
    Sometimes our prayers are not exactly answered the way we want them to, but there is always His guidance and the strength to get through anything we face.
    I don't mean to digress. I apologize. I have looked about this forum and found a whole bargeload of wonderful people.
    Thank you for having me here!
    Purrs,
    Pookie

    180 degrees the other way

    Charleston is of course on the coast...we are on the "other end" in the Upstate near the mountains in Pickens,SC. the funny thing is....I also have an Aunt and Uncle that live in Charleston. They own the old Wespannee (sp?) Plantation House across the river from the Citadel. My Uncle was career Army and his last assigned post before retiring was a brief stint as Commandant of the Citadel. Then (and this was back in the 70's) the Colonel and his Lady retired to the plantation!:laugh:

    Welcome to the Baptist Board, Pookie. I've been a Baptist since I was born again on May 18, 1963. A Baptist was the only one who was concerned enough about my soul to ask me "Are you saved", although I had no idea at that time what that meant.
