This painting was created from a photograph from long ago.  We think it may be the farmstead of Paul’s matriarchal family.  A different time when life was much simpler, yet full of hard labor and short span of years.


A cobblestone path, a house made of mortar and brick,

The doors were not locked, its light was a lone candlestick,

With shutters to shade, open windows to cool,

A mile from the farm stood the elementary school,

A fire to cook on and warmth to provide,

When the days grew much colder outside,

Each day brought new challenge, but strong work ethic remained

You came home exhausted, but still you never complained,

The days turned to night in an instant, and morning came sooner than planned,

With the dawn of the sun, a new day has begun and you pray you can rise up and stand

Just a plain, simple building, with acres to till,

A place to call home and a lifetime of memories to fill.

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.
