Meet Diane W. Bailey
Hi There! I am so glad you have stopped by. I know that we are going to be friends and have a lot of stories to share.
Did you know that you are wonderfully made? Faults and all, God calls you wonderfully made. You were made in His image, and when you are weak He has you covered.
That is where He is strong. He has promised!
I am Diane W. Bailey. The “W” was added after I searched the web and discovered how many Diane Baileys there are in the world.
I live in the heart of Alabama. Wife to Joseph, mom to two adult children, step mom to two adult children and Grandmother, a.k.a Gigi, to three, who are my reward for not resigning from motherhood when things got tough!
My nest is empty now, but not my life, I am just as busy as ever writing, speaking and ministering to others-just a new dimension of life.
My life is not perfect, I frequently over flow the coffee pot and have been known to trip and fall when there is nothing in the way. Each day I promise to invent a device that will locate my keys and cell phone when I whistle. I also want to write a book that endorses my own style of punctuation…and maybe spelling!
I decided to write the book on punctuation as I wrote my first book. String of Pearls talks to women about taking the sorrows we hold in our hearts, and as grains of sand become pearls, our sorrows become a testimony to the work God has done in our lives. Then by the end of our lives we will have a String Of Pearls, and each one is evidence of God’s faithfulness to continue to creat us in His image.
String of Pearls is a book I have written from a deep dark pit, trying to search and find the God in my life, when all I could see were tears and failures.
Those who seek will find (Proverb 9:17)
I sought Him and I found Him.
Now I seek Him in my day-to-day life. Not all of His ways do I understand, but from time to time He will give me a glimpse of His work and I can see Him moving to draw me closer to Himself.
As the hem of His garment brushes past me, I am encouraged. Then like Job, I am confident to say,
“Though He slay me, yet will I trust in Him” (Job 13:15).
I can see the love of the Father,
In the love Joseph gives,
When the sun through the window creates a cross on the floor,
Songs of deliverance that awaken me each morning,
A friend speaking the same word that I have heard in my heart.
Images of Christ in Everyday Life.
I believe in the Apostle’s Creed
I believe in the Nicene Creed
I believe in the Father who created every living thing that was, or is, or ever will be.
I believe In Christ the Son, whose life blood poured from His body to give me life eternal.
I believe in the Holy Spirit whose power is from the Father, and who’s wisdom whispers quietly , “here I am, go this way”.
I am a BELIEVER.
