Dear, Holy God, You have safely brought me through another week.  I began with anxious thoughts and you were there to give me rest.  I failed to accomplish everything I intended to do, but you helped me realize that it wasn’t as important as I thought it should be.

As I waited for answers on what to do next, what would happen tomorrow, how would I be able to handle difficult decisions – health issues – those whom I love going through tough things – You were there right beside me.  You never left me, even though I often forgot to turn to you for comfort.

Why do I try so hard to figure things out for myself when I know that you’ve got it all under control?  Why do I find it difficult to let go and let you do what you have already planned for my life? Maybe it’s because of my weakness or maybe it’s so that I will realize how much I really depend on you in everything I do.

Thanks and praise to you for answered prayers – for giving hope and allowing me to look forward again – for not giving up on me – for strength when I thought there was none to be had.  Thank you, dear heavenly Father for your constant attention to every detail of my life.  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
