Thank you for visiting my site. The reason I chose to post this blog was to share with you an incredible story....a story that should not go untold. It has and will forever be etched in my mind as the most monumental moment of my life.....that is, when I experienced first hand the saving grace and mighty power of GOD Himself.

This story is that of a divine miracle that occurred while I was on vacation with my family in Santa Rosa, Florida on July 8, 2007. Little did I know that God had a large role for me to play on that unforgettable that I am blessed to have received.

Since then, it has caught media attention from CBS Early Show, the St. Louis Suburban Journal, the Seaside Times, FOX 2 News Detroit, FOX 2 News St. Louis and Readers Digest.

This blog is meant to give a full account of the story from my perspective; providing all the facts as it unfolded. I encourage you to read on....I promise that it is worth your time and may just give you the inspiration needed to get you through your day. In fact, I would even venture to say that it could change your perspective on life forever!

With Heartfelt Thanks,
Erika Wieland (formerly Orlando)

  1. Indeed, an experience as a type of Christ-
    Who came from far away just to save.

    Matthew 1:21 "you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins."

    In Him alone--
