During the time of His arrest, by a vigilante gang of leaders of the church of His day, Jesus stood uncomplaining. He suffered the brutal threats and insults. He withstood the humiliation of being spat upon and assaulted by His enemies. He quietly suffered the pain of the lash. which consisted of 9 leather straps imbedded with glass and metal. When whipped across the back, it would tear large chunks of flesh from the body, causing blood to spill out. When they forced Him to carry His own cross, He no longer had the appearance of a man. He was now a bloody mass. His hair was matted with blood and saliva. His body was weak from the loss of blood, His face bruised from the continuous slaps and jabs of the Roman guards.

Was this the man who would save the world?

I can’t even begin to imagine the pain Jesus endured, but I know that He did this for me and everyone in the world – even those who don’t know Him or believe in Him. His fulfilled sacrifice for us was the necessary price paid for the forgiveness of sins. He has given this gift to everyone, through His precious blood, so that the slate is now clean for those who believe in Him. It is because of what He has done that we have been set free.

Beautiful Savior, Lord of the nations,
Son of God and Son of Man!
Glory and honor, praise, adoration,
Now and forevermore be Thine.


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
