Caesar Augustus reigned as emperor of the Roman Empire during a time of relative peace and prosperity – The Pax Romana. Many beautiful buildings were erected during this time. Old traditions were brought back and people also looked forward to a future of comfort. Rome was the center of the universe for many. He restored the office of the censor and set out to get an accurate census of all the provinces he controlled. Apparently it not been done for many years. How interesting that it happened at just that moment in time.

Caesar was a stickler for details, but again God was in control. It was time for Mary to deliver the promised Messiah. It couldn’t have been easy to travel by donkey in her condition, but it happened this way so the prophesy could be fulfilled. The Savior was to be born in the City of David, Bethlehem.

Today He continues to place us in different situations with different people and it is all part of His amazing blueprint for our lives.


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

    This statement has a lot of practical meaning for our lives: “Today He continues to place us in different situations with different people and it is all part of His amazing blueprint for our lives.”
