About the Book

MY REASON FOR WRITING THIS BOOK By Barbara Diana Gilbert As a youth, my ernest desire was to pursue the medical field and I pursued this option with confidence. My overall thinking was that I was destined to be a Psychologist and nothing would stand in my way. I always felt that my purpose in this life was to help others in whichever way I could, however, as I matured, I realized that my own hidden pain had become a burden too heavy to carry. My soul was searching and I wandered aimlessly, hoping for some source of comfort – a ray of hope – anything that would ease my pain. I excelled in almost every area I pursued; I tried to convince myself that hurt went away when one can find ways to block its entry. I was wrong. Books had become my strength over time; words had nestled into my subconscious and had become my healing emollient. They were my constant companion. Eventually I resorted to the only remedy I could find and that was self expression. I found comfort by expressing my feelings on paper. These thoughts engineered into greater thoughts - finally becoming a dream that maybe one day I would write for others to read and their lives may be inspired and touched by my experiences. A fellow writer said to me quite recently and I find this exceedingly profound, ‘maybe I had to endure this pain so that others in this life may benefit from my suffering’. I wonder! I give precedence to the Great God whom I serve for without his guidance and direction I would not have foreseen this vision. My thanks to all who read and are inspired.
