This particular day I was given a slip of paper by the teacher. On the paper she had written a Scripture verse. I stared at the verse. It was the first time anyone had ever given me a Scripture and I read it over and over. I’m sure that teacher had no idea how I valued that strip of paper. That verse planted the most important seed in my life. It became the foundation of my walk and understanding of the Lord. I kept that strip of paper in my Bible for about 35 years until I gave it to my oldest daughter when she turned 12.
