Today was such a magical day! Including a magical bathroom! I know that sounds funny, but it's true. getting to the pageant was stressful. We got lost 8 miles in wrong direction which was stressful and my fault for not printing out the directions. So, when I got there I was stressed. But I really needed to use the bathroom. So, I go into the ladies room and there is a ceiling speaker blaring the song, "You Are So Beautiful too Me." I felt that heaven was serenading me. So, first, I went into the initial interviews with the judges. That went well, as the judges were people I connected with and comfortably shared my story and vision in being Ms. Wheelchair Wa. Following the interviews was a short break before the speeches and questioning from the judges in front of the crowd . Again, I went too the bathroom! The song "Hero" was playing, by Mariah Carey, which is one of my all-time favorite songs! It really ministered too me and inspired me. Right before my speech I found a quiet place where I could connect with the Lord alone. I gave Him my fear and received empowerment by the Holy Spirit. When I did my speech, my heart was pounding, but everything came out elaquently. MIRACLE!! After I received the crown, a joy like I have never known came over me!! Then, miracles started to happen! I made connections with a man named Marty, who knows a publisher he can connect me with to help publish my childrens' book. I met the owner of kersey mobility, who wants to help me with the process of getting a modified van. And I connected with women who do make up and hair and offered their services to me. I also connected with several other prominent public speakers. What a miraculous day!! am so excited for what this year holds! Praise the Lord!!!
