The Dove Cote

Hello, my name is Vonda and I live in Oxfordshire England with my husband Ron and my 2 children by marriage, Andrew and Sue.

Around four months after we were married, I was diagnosed with cancer. One of those things that you think will never happen to you. My strong faith in Christ enabled me to go on, and get through it all. I had faith and I had no doubt that my God was going to be with me every step of the way. There were so many prayers sent up for me and I had the love and support of family and friends, especially my husband. My sister Angie shuttled me back and forth to treatments and I don't know what we would have done without her.

I have been here 5 years. The Lord came through for us in every way! It's absolutely amazing the connections and people that He put before us so I could be here.

I created this website to honor my Savior, Jesus. It took me a year to complete it and I still make occasional changes and updates to it. If only one person is brought to the Lord from viewing it, or perhaps their life is changed by it, then all the work was well worth it.

I fell in love with Jesus at the age of 13, and I gave my life to Him. It was the happiest moment I have ever known. So much peace He gave me. In a world that is often times unkind and cruel, I know I still have the peace that comes from knowing Christ. When so many are saying there is no God; I know even more strongly there is. I have seen Him move in my life and in others. I am not ashamed. I havent always lived a life that would honor Him. I often times fell short of the name Christian. However His love for me never changed through the years and I never stopped loving Him.

The Lord blessed me with 3 wonderful children. Brook, my oldest son, his wife Carolynn, Justin my second son, and his wife Melissa, and Nicole my daughter, and her husband Jason. I am a grandmother and a great grandmother.. :o) 8 in total. Check put my grandkids page!

I love doves and thus I dubbed myself with a dove name. My 2 youngest children and I use to raise and fly homing pigeons. We enjoyed it so much. Some were white and some were bluebars, etc... Also rollers, the ones that fly up high and then roll in the air doing flips. My son, Justin, still keeps doves. I love what the white dove stands for... for peace, but also the Holy Spirit. We know that the Holy Spirit is not a bird, but rather the powerful entity of the trinity of our God.

Thank you for visiting our site, and please come by often. May the Lord bless you with His grace, for His mercy endureth forever!
