I’m met by guilt on every day. It sweeps my peace of mind away.
It starts with little things at dawn – why did I go and sleep so long?
My socks don’t match – my hair’s a mess. Did I forget our morning kiss?
The laundry grows to mountainous heights. My to-do list gives me a fright?
Our meal tonight will be a breeze, if frozen meat will please unfreeze.

I’m guilty over silly things like dirty toilets and tub rings.
A gallon jug with just one drop – a delinquent bill that I forgot.
I never can do one thing right. I’m late for work – I’ll stay tonight.
I’m guilty over big things too. Like doing things I ought to do
A smile for one who feels down cast – a prayer, a hug, a forgotten past.

Lord, you know my frailties. You’ve given everything for me,
You’ve paid for every single sin, that haunts and makes me sick within.
Help me to see your perfect grace. May I soon see you face to face.
Redeemed and perfect bought by you. Give me the power to follow you.
I pray you wash my guilt away, with every other sin today.


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

  1. I loved this, Kathy. Now therefore, there is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus!


  2. I can relate for sure… And wearing matching socks is so 2013. Only nerds wear socks that match in 2014. (Made that up) šŸ˜‰

      I know what you mean. Most of my students wear two different socks. Guess mothers have given up on trying to match them, especially when the washing machine eats half of them.
