Sunny the Servant

Sunny considers herself to be a servant of the Lord and knows that it is one of the greatest privileges and responsibilities of her life.

One of her favorite things is to praise the Name of the Lord.

She especially loves the scripture from Psalm--

Praise the Lord, you his servants;
praise the name of the Lord.
Let the name of the Lord be praised,
both now and forevermore.
From the rising of the sun to the place where it sets,
the name of the Lord is to be praised.

Her mother told her a story about her name that she loves.

She remembers vividly the night she came to
know Jesus as her personal Lord and Savior.

She was pregnant with Sunny and wondering what she was going to do,
how she was going to handle a new baby without the benefit 
of a husband for her and a father for the new life growing
inside of her.

As she was out strolling in the black of night
with moonbeams casting their sparkles around her,
it seemed she was caught up in a vision.

Before her appeared the missionaries she had met as a small child
and in their hands were pages of light that seemed to have
letters and words that danced across the golden parchment.

As the words waltzed across the illumined page,
passages of scripture from the book of John
suddenly appeared and pierced her eyes
making their way to the craters of her heart.

They landed there with perfect precision
igniting the passions of her soul with a heavenly sunlight.
Suddenly she understood everything they had said to her--

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made.  In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. from John 1, New Testament

The darkness around her was instantly overcome with light,
she made the God of the Universe her own through the sacrifice of Jesus.
She knew He would see her through her deepest needs.

She named her baby Sunlight Dance and called her Sunny for short.
