Every day we are exposed to the evil that contaminates our world.  What goes on behind closed doors is often disgusting, appalling, pitiful, inhumane and full of hatred.

As I look at news events I read about a home in Blackstone, Mass. where three dead infants are found amidst a sea of filth and vermin.  Four others are alive but are living their childhood in despicable conditions and who knows what they have to face each day.

A man in Minneapolis is found dead from fatal stab wounds after having an argument with another – an argument!

A football player brutally roughs up his girlfriend in an elevator and drags her unconscious body to his hotel room.

Further from home we see our own people being decapitated – Children being mass murdered – Christians being persecuted and killed for their beliefs.

It seems like the end of the world must be coming soon.  The signs of the end times are growing clearer every day.  Unfortunately this sort of behavior isn’t new.  It has been going on since the fall of man into sin.

It seems each generation becomes more and more depraved, but does it?  Sin is sin and it probably isn’t much different than it was way back when – we just live in a world where everything is immediate – including the ugly side of life.  There are videos of these ugly events which in a flash go viral. We have a front row seat to every kind of dastardly behavior out there.

Instead of complaining about it – or ignoring it – or shaking our heads –  we should be doing something about it.  We have the perfect opportunity right now in our time to share a better way to live to those who are hurting – who have suffered abuse – are living in hopeless conditions – are dying before their time.

These same tools (the media and the internet) which bring us the open knowledge of what is happening day by day, can be used to bring relief and comfort to the world.  It’s the soothing balm of God’s wonderful message for our lives.  We have it right at our finger tips.




As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on
