Let me introduce myself to you through a different cadence…
My name is James Thomas Canali.
I am my Fathers son.
I may have been born into a World-at-war.
A world of apathy, depression, death and divorce.
But I have a Creator who loves me.
Who came into the darkness, and terror of my life and rescued me with his smile.
He has brought me out of the shame, the horror, and fear of the past,
and into the glorious light,
and out of that place of embrace– I emerge.
wielding the wounds of yesterday as weapons in the war of today.
And I will not fear
For the Breath and Maker of My life is with me, and in me!
