Original art by Paul T. Boecher© “The Valley of the Shadow of Death”
Deep within the darkness of death, there lies a golden light leading the way to eternity. Even though terror lies all around, that light continues to shine. In the center of it all, man suffers or perhaps just falls asleep, but the fear of death is real.
As Jesus prayed in the garden and sweat drops of blood – as He ate His last meal with His disciples – as He was beaten and smitten for our afflictions – as He took the laborious trek to the cross – death was at the center of His mind, but in His heart, the light of eternity beckoned and He was more than willing to share it with 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 Amazon.com.
