Shriveled skin without elasticity,

Tiny eyes embedded in a sea of flab,

Bags and creases uncommonly placed between,

Hair coming from places it has never before been,

Loss of hair in other areas,

Creaking bones, fragile joints,

Sagging flesh,

Strength depleted, endurance gone,

Leaving no room for laughter,

No joy in the little things,

But still life remains in this aging body,

Now its time to turn that unseemly frown,

Upside down,

Laugh, darn you, laugh,

Show those empty spaces in your smile,

The whole experience of aging,

Is really quite hilarious.



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
