"Go!" the deep voice in her head shouted--not a whisper this time. Those whispers started before Violet turned six years old. The signs began as a young adult, and the miracles came later. Some signs proved lifesaving, some deadly; some seemed innocuous until hindsight. Why had she strayed from the right path? Cheat. Liar. Thief. Drug user. Could she ever find a father's love--and a lover's touch? With a learning disability and debilitating illness, could she still find joy in God's presence?
Looking back, Violet's life had an outline: unexpected connections, guidance, insights, all carefully timed, dovetailed to perfection. She walked with several loved ones from this world to death's portal. As she participated in each of their unique journeys, she knew God led the way. Together, the signs, whispers and miracles formed an intricate pattern, intelligently designed--some joyful, some filled with hardship. Like a compass, directional and often lifechanging, they wove into her very existence, even the most painful, for her good.
Violet prays you learn from her mistakes--and recognize God's hand in your life; that you will find joy underlining tragedy. May you witness miracles, sewn into the fabric of your existence and feel the presence of God.
BIOGRAPHY Violet Batejan grew up near Valley Forge, Pennsylvania. A graduate of Temple University, she spent forty-seven years as a physical therapist in various settings. Writing, always a first love, played an important role in her life. In 1991, she graduated from the Institute of Children's Literature. She won awards at St. David's Christian Writer's Conference, where her writing became a life-long ambition. Presently, she is a full-time writer who lives with her husband, Michael, and their Maine Coon cat, in the picturesque hills of Southeastern Pennsylvania.
Always a lover of nature and "furry things," Violet has enjoyed cats, dogs, horses and many smaller creatures of God's creation. When called to save a fellow employee from a small snake, her instant response was, "Don't hurt it! I'm coming!" Married for forty-five years, Violet named their home "Eden Hill" reflecting gratitude for her surroundings and husband. They have lived on this piece of God's real estate for forty-three years.
