Carmen is a positively energizing individual.
She delivers an earnest message of hope through her sincere, deliberate, and unbiased methods of  compassion.
Her stride with Christ is strong.
Her hunger for God is palpable.
Her love for the broken is deep.
And her faith in Christ is sincere.
Carmen was someone "different" just less than a year ago, and that's what makes her life so impacting, effective, and remarkable.
Carmen's life has become simplified and straightened out through loving Christ and loving others.
She goes where He nudges her to go and she employs herself whole-heartedly in the station God places her in, no matter how humble or "unadorned" that station is.
Carmen is able to love in this extraordinary fashion,
Because Christ loved her "first" in an extraordinary fashion.
It's beautiful to witness, touch, and draw near to an impassioned soul, dear Reader. 
Even though Carmen has experienced soul suffication, emotional dehydration, isolation, and deep condemnation, she has kept her heart close to the Father's and He has kept His shepherding hand on her.
And here she is alive,
Fully alive,
Holding hands with the Father.
Holding hands with me.
And on and on we move,
In holy sync with the Father.
Mmmm ...
And the question has been answered in hopeful measure to my wondering, wandering Reader friend who asks,
"Is any life too far gone to be used by Jesus?"
You answer the question.
Hmmm ...
"Seek ye the Lord while He may be found, call ye upon Him while He is near. Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; and let him return unto the Lord, and He will have mercy upon him, and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon."
Isaiah 55:6-7
*Read Psalm 51, dear Reader, with a special emphasis on the first word "Then"  in verse 13.
Record all the transpirings of the soul before this particular word erupts.
It will bless, impact, and provoke.
