Undercover WOW Woman – Aunt Naomi

Aunt Naomi – An Undercover WOW Woman

 

You know who they are—the quiet “she-ros” of the church and community. In my new book to be released September 26, Undercover WOW Woman2017, “Rhinestones on My Flip-Flops” I discuss this amazing type of Woman of Wisdom. Pay attention to these “sainted ladies.” They have deep faith and wisdom through their many acts of kindness that are the fundamental pillars of a thriving body of believers.

Too bad Glenn Campbell never lived to hear my rewrite of his song, “Rhinestoned Cowboy” to my parody, “She Wore her Rhinestoned Jesus.” Aunt Naomi’s rhinestones were never worn on the outside of her clothing but on the inside of her heart. She had a gift that kept on giving—that stands tall today as a monument to her faithfulness.

Rescue Dogs Who Rescued Me

It was a gift from God; a beautiful black dog showed up one day at our home on Johns Island. I was a ten-year-old tomboy and nothing was more exciting to me than walking around the farm exploring. “Blackie”  and I bonded. She became my best-friend and constant companion.  The term “rescue dog” was not even invented but then I think back on those precious years of companionship, Blackie was one of those  rescue dogs who rescued me.It was a gift from God; a beautiful black dog showed up one day at our home on Johns Island.

She was the friend who listened and never judged me.  If I had a problem, I would walk and talk with Blackie.  She just stared at me with her big golden-brown eyes.  I just knew I my heart that she understood every word I said. Blackie was my protector.  I loved riding my bicycle to visit my Grandparents and she was right side me. On one trip down that dirt road, she jumped in front of my bike barking out-of-control.  Right in front of me was a giant snake coiled up, ready to strike.
