WATCHING THE GRASS GROW

ORIGINAL ART & POETRY BY PAUL & KATHY BOECHER©

The days are much longer, the sun’s here to stay,

We’ve turned life’s cold corner and it’s a new day,

The once frozen waters are now clear and blue,

Earth covered with new growth and fresh sun kissed dew,

The sweet songs of springtime come from every tree

The long dormant branches, don buds that grow free,

The dark days of winter relinquish their hold,

A peace lies in springtime which never grows old,

The grass pushes forth and new life finds its way,

Through mulch and dead leaves it comes out now to play,

I sit here and wonder how life starts anew,

How death can evade us yet carry us through,

The darkness of days to a bright shining light,

I think then of Jesus and of His great might,

He’s cast off the shackles and burdensome load,

Our freedom He’s purchased, and made straight the road,

Perfection awaits us in Heaven’s sweet home,

Exploding as springtime, no more shall we roam.

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.
