I spent weeks at my grandparents’ farm in the summer and am reminded of the crackling sound of the radio whining out some of those ancient spiritual songs of woe. I guess you could call them the blues of the country. Grandma would sing along and the old Border collie often joined her with howls of his own. The songs permeated the air and often prompted me outside, but they remain a steadfast memory.  Even today, when urging our dog into his kennel, I sing, “Swing Lo, Sweet Chariot,” as he hangs his head low, knowing he’s going to be cooped up for a while.

I wonder how God feels when He hears our cries for help. He tells us to pray without ceasing, but it must be a terrible noise at times – a great cacophony of millions of prayers and songs of sadness and hope.   The cool thing is that He can hear each and every voice and He answers all of them in His own time and way. I am so glad His patience allows me the opportunity to raise my voice to Him.

Thank you, dear Father, for opening the door to your office and giving me the assurance that you are always “in” to hear me.  You have opened that door with your Son, Jesus, who made it all possible.  Help me to sing songs that are pleasing to your ears.  Amen

Lamentations 3:55-57 “I called on your name, O LORD, from the depths of the pit; you heard my plea, ‘Do not close your ear to my cry for help! You came near when I called on you; you said, ‘Do not fear!’


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
