BEAUTY IN THE EYE OF THE BEHOLDER

ART & INSPIRATION FROM PAUL & KATHY BOECHER©

Swirling shades of mauve, azure, mossy green and brilliant yellow,

Interlaced with contrasting purples, browns, deep crimson,

Knotted and gnarly,

Ridged, impenetrable, stoic,

Trees can hold secrets from centuries before,

They listen, but never respond,

They dance in the wind,

Breathe as each season carries them,

Die in the final one,

But rise to live again,

We become tangled,

Hardened,

Entrenched,

Tightly woven in the fabric of life,

Forgetting,

Who gave us breath,

We struggle,

We become weak,

We blame ourselves,

And others,

For the plight of every day,

We abandon the One who loves,

Without end,

Forgives,

Without end,

Turns death into life again,

He will hold us in all strife,

Carry when we no longer can walk,

Cuddle us in His massive wings,

When we ask Him to,

Ask.

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.
