I dedicate this to my mom, Lela B. Gooden. This story was written in spurts as words were received from God. She would call every day and ask me if I had written anymore. She just “couldn’t wait” for the next section. And even though God is responsible for this story, Mom was “Inspiration” for me to put it on paper. I love you to the moon and into Heaven, Mom!! Thanks for your encouragement.
Mom was born April 28, 1929. She passed over into Heaven March 26, 2013.
