DISTANT MEMORY

ORIGINAL ART & INSPIRATION FROM PAUL & KATHY BOECHER©

They are not long, the days of wine and roses:
Out of a misty dream
Our path emerges for a while, then closes
Within a dream.

– Ernest Dowson, from “Vitae Summa Brevis” (1896).

Our days go swiftly, like an early morning dawn,

They often pass so quickly, they pass and they are gone,

We turn each page anticipating,

We long for and are waiting,

For time to take us home,

We set our course on human need and soon are pushed aside,

But holding to God’s master plan, with Him we’ll soon abide,

The lakes will turn to ice,

The trees will sacrifice,

And winter now does loom,

The end of days, a time to pray, repenting of our sins,

We softly cast our cares on God, we know He always wins,

In times of stress or pain

We look to Him for gain,

New life beyond the tomb.

About atimetoshare.me

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.

    The words spoke to me. God has never failed and as a matter of fact He is too faithful to fail. What He says He will do,He will do much more.
