I am a wife, a mother, a student, a teacher, a businesswoman and most importantly a child of the most high God. When I was 12 I prayed for a husband and a family of my own. God waited until I was 34 years old to answer my prayer. The journey has been incredible and I often thank God that he gave me time to enjoy all that the single life has to offer. Marrage and family...a totally different world. Everyday I experience first hand Christ's death on the cross. Sacrificing for my family, loving my husband, loving my son requires a constant pushing aside of Anika. But I remind myself daily that Christ did not stay dead. He arose. And every time that I feel my husband's arms around me...I arise. Whenever my son nurses at my breast...I arise. When I survey all of God's many blessings in my life, I am ressurrected. The challenge is me finding my place in this new role God has placed me in. Slowly but surely, Anika is coming into her place. As I give of myself to my family a new Anika comes to be. Whosever is in Christ, is a new creature. The old has gone, the new has come! It's no longer I, but Christ who lives in me!
