The smells of summer still hang in the air,

The potent fragrance of fertile soil,

The aroma of a bonfire after dark to smoke out the mosquitoes,

The blooming roses cast their lovely scent as they cling to life,

Knowing only too well that their days are numbered,

The days grow shorter,

The last glimmer of sunlight is consumed by darkness,

In what seems like an instant,

Crimsons, golds, rusts and brilliant yellows take the place of lush, succulent greens,

God has taken His paint brush and blended warm hues on His palette,

Blending the pigment across the landscape,

He gives us one more brilliant display,

Before the lifeless blanket of white,

Spreads across the great expanse. Autumn!

Our house has sold and we are about to buy another.  That tree has been a blessing to watch turn from green to brilliant red every fall.  I will miss it, but God does His handiwork everywhere.


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
