The sassy winds of autumn swirl through the trees of gold,

Undressing each and every branch exposing signs of age.

The life is being sapped from things both young and old.

The brilliance of each final growth is now exposed to rage.


We tumble like the leaves on high. Our colors fade and wane.

Our vibrance softly drifts away like shards of earthen rust.

Our life is being sapped from us. Each day reveals new pain.

Regeneration lies beyond the cold and wintry thrust.


A life renewed, refreshed, restored awaits us in the spring,

But like the final steadfast leaves, to life we still will cling.

Break forth with song. Praise God above. Delight in all His glory.

A new day waits, but while we tarry, let’s always share His story.

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

    Such a beautiful poem with God’s meaning intertwined with the changing of seasons. So ironic because I was thinking of something similar yesterday. Faith together with the time of year, I guess. Lovely.
