Diane's letter to God

By: Diane Wilkins February 6, 2017

Dear God,

 

I love you with all of my heart. I want to thank you for my life, taking care of me when I was homeless and living in four different shelters, and sleeping at the bus stop on Leland and Sheridan. I prayed and cried for two years on the inside and you finally answered my prayers. You blessed me with this beautiful studio, which looks and feels as large as a one-bedroom apartment. I love and adore it. I thought you forgot about me, and that this day would never come, but my love and faith have proven me wrong, and I thank you every day of my life! I never understood how or why I lost my apartment of eight years in the first place, but now I do. All of my anger is gone, and I know you love me, and you have showed me in so many ways, which I ignored. But now I understand and I am very grateful. I realize I am a child of God, and my children are not mine forever, no matter how much I love them. I know now we all belong to you! Thank you for opening my eyes and heart. I also thank you for my family here at StreetWise and all the others you have placed in my life! God I love you and I always will!

 

Amen,

Diane Wilkins
