Excerpt from Chapter 1
Early Lessons---Knoxville, Tennessee
Within thirty minutes after her father had returned from the doctor, he called her inside
and told her he was going to die. Not in those exact words but even at nearly seven she was
smart enough to read between the lines. What he had said was that he might have to go
somewhere with Jesus, which she already knew meant he was going to heaven.
“Daddy, what if I don’t want you to go?” Julie said, eyeing him closely.
Her mother was the next to try. “Sometimes God needs people like your daddy,” Mary
Ellen said. She didn’t know what else to say. Her husband was thirty-one and diagnosed with
testicular cancer. The doctor gave him an outside chance of living three months. “So He calls
them to be with Him.”
“He can choose someone else,” Julie said, defiantly.
“It’s not that I want to go but I don’t have a choice,” her father said. “Do you understand
what I’m saying?”
She understood, all right. God was bullying her around and taking her father away. That
was as plain as the nose on her face.
“Your grandfather always says that God has a plan in everything He does,” Mary Ellen
Julie threw her arms around her daddy’s neck. “I don’t want you to die!”
But he did. The year was 1968.
