Rushing water,

Surging as it crashes,

Over broken rock,

And fallen trees,

Twisting and turning,

Undulating like a serpent,

Snaking its way through the forest,

Life giving water,

Flourishing with vitality,

Imprisoned by its boundaries,

Still following the path,

Carved out for it,

As in humanity,

On a collision course with life,

Obeying all the rules,

Doing our best,

Trying yet failing,

Melting down,



A catastrophe waiting to happen,

Within life’s disaster,

Our Savior walks with us,

Guiding our course,

Lifting us when we can no longer stand,

Supporting through all adversity,

The same Creator who made the river,

Allows us to crash and fall,

Yet guides us to still waters.




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
