"Thank you to Paulette Norman for her personal testimony titled “WHY I DON'T JUST SIT AND STARE - My Life's Journey with God”. Paulette shared how God has been by her side from birth, through the loss of her son McKay, her debilitating health conditions and her restoration to touch the lives of many in the name of Jesus Christ. From the moment Paulette began we were spellbound with silence. Our hearts were filled with the hurt and pain recognized as our eyes shed tears to mourn the grief and suffering experienced. This day many hearts were transformed in the name of McKay to look to God for guidance and direction when our world comes crashing down around us. Only by the grace of God was Paulette able to share her story highlighting sadness and loss but much more her story underlined the triumph of joy and life eternal with God by our side. Of course we are human and Paulette admitted she continues to be reminded of the pain and sadness from the loss of McKay, but the happiness and joy shines through because she knows this life is only an instant compared to our eternity in Heaven. God desires a mother’s soul to remain in this world as a witness, so that her son will live in spirit to be a testament to the love of Christ. Thank you Lord for your love, your grace, your peace!!!"
