Every experience God gives us,
Every person He puts into our lives
The Perfect preparation
For a Future
Only He can see

-Corrie ten Boom

Have you heard of Corrie ten Boom? If you grew up in a family like mine, you would have. (My friends and husband laugh at the fact that "Bible Trivia" was one of the games my cousins and I used to play!!) . We used to have her biography as a comic at my grandparents home. (we even had "Christian" Archie comics!!...yes, they exist!!! LOL!!!

Anyway, I came across this quote by her sometime ago,(May 27th, 2009 to be exact!), saved it on my blogger page so that I could write a post on it sometime in the future, and then forgot all about it. (people don't call me a scatterbrain for nothing!) Today, as I was looking through the 20 odd posts I started but never finished, this one stuck out from the rest. Imagine a young woman, a holocaust survivor, meets one of her tormentors who comes to ask her forgiveness many years later, and then is able to say this! What a life!

And I thought I'd just share it!

* After I posted this, I went on to Google Christian Archie Comics, and I found this. I have no idea how my Appacha got a bunch of those comics, but we had them all... I remember reading Johnny Cash's biography in comic form and 'The Cross and the Switchblade', one about a seagull and more.


  1. Love it ! I Love your new posts' and the new direction your blogs' heading in! Can't wait to read more.

  2. Time has strange ways of bringing the truth out. Just today I read news about a child who was kidnapped at the age of 19 days...
    This kid grew up in another home for 20 odd years. All along she had a feeling she didn’t belong there. Her sixth sense? intuition? She probed into 'missing and kidnapped kids ' department. There she found a baby picture which seemed to match the baby pics she had. She arranged for investigation... all the right doors opened and voila! She is united with her real family
