As I get ready for another theater production, it means it’s time to sew. Often I will prick my finger on a pin or my eyes will get tired after a long day of costume construction. Once my sewing machine sewed right through my finger.  Guess you could say, I shed a bit of blood for everyone of my shows.

Making just the right garment to reveal as much as possible about the character is really important.  They say that clothes make the man, but they don’t always cover the darkness that lies within.

Can you imagine what it would be like to be clothed by the Creator of the universe? In the Genesis creation story, Adam and Eve were completely aware they had sinned against God. They knew their disobedience would carry consequences. Because of their lack of trust in the one and only God, they now realized they were naked and tried to cover themselves with leaves.  They actually thought they could run away from the One who made them.

Of course they couldn’t hide from the all knowing God, but instead of condemning them to immediate death, He clothed them and gave them a promise of redemption. 

Our God is and always has been one of patience, love and provision. Even though our hearts don’t obey – even though we don’t follow His commandments – even though we give in to temptation – God is always with us. He knows our needs, listens to our prayers and forgives.

Thank you, God, for loving me and giving me all that I need. Even though I don’t deserve it, you look on me with compassion – as the good and perfect Father that you are. Through that love, you provided a way out for me and clothe me in Your eternal life in Christ alone.  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
