When I was in sales I heard something that really stuck in my measly little mind.

“The hardest door to open is your own.”

So often we hide in the security of our own safety net and never venture beyond it. We are stifled by insecurity, fear and a lack of self confidence. Even our churches are guilty of this and this can be a huge stumbling block.

As the years go by I have learned that it really isn’t about me, but what I can do for someone else is far more beneficial. I’ve also come to realize that I am not alone when I face into something unknown. God is with us in everything we do and if we let Him, He will bless us more than we can even imagine.

Oh, Almighty God, with you my path will never be unsure. You tend me like a shepherd – keeping me focused on the right path – helping me overcome obstacles – breaking me only to reshape me – caring for my bruised body and lifting me out of danger. I praise you for presence in my life. Amen!


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
