There was nothing but an empty expanse – the deepest darkest place ever.

Water lay upon the surface, but there was no life within it.

The canopy above held thunderous clouds but they too were hidden in the ink filled sky.

There was an unspeakable tenebrosity – nothingness – empty – lost,

The Lord spoke, “Let there be light!” and there was light.  

A light that exploded across the horizon and filled the air with warmth –

With nourishment for life yet to come – 

With release from the grip of eternal blackness,

With respite for the coming creation of those who would fill the earth,

Out of that obscurity came light, a light that would never be extinguished,

He knew even then that mankind would choose disobedience,

And still He provided a way – a guide – a light to open a  path on earth,

A brilliant luminosity that would also lead to the gates of heaven,

He is the light of the world!



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
