I am outwardly wasting away.  It’s also known as growing old.  My body sags, my skin has become withered, my senses are duller and so is my memory.  I find myself going from one room to another with purpose, only to forget what it was.  Aging is a necessary part of the natural process of living, but it doesn’t have to be debilitating.  

God wants us to live abundantly. That’s why He works within us every day – nourishing us with the power of His Spirit – protecting us with knowledge that comes from His Word – giving us challenges which grow our faith and dependence on Him.  Through this time of grace we not only have the opportunity to grow closer to God, but we can share His amazing love with others.

Our road to heaven isn’t paved with our good works, but with the precious victory won by Christ for us.  Our reward of eternal life is not dependent on anything we do.  It’s a free gift bestowed on us by the One who created us.

Eternal life is waiting – it doesn’t cost a cent – it’s God’s love personified through His only Son. Our dying bodies can look forward to renewal, restoration and refreshment on the other side of the grave.  Life goes on with great abundance.


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
