For two weeks, I was rarely exposed to the noise of a TV, the cacophony of rhetoric out of Washington, the negative, the fake.  The Senators Foghorn Leghorn, who love the sound of their own voice were a distant memory.  The local news channels fighting for a scoop and reporting stories with equally irresponsible journalism, was nowhere to be found.

Since returning home, the news has returned, but I’ve turned a deaf ear to it.  I only have one good ear anyway.  We can tune out all the ugliness of the political scene.  We can ignore the state of the world and the hotspots erupting all around it.  We can even cocoon ourselves from all of it by turning inward, but there is too much which needs to be fixed and the ugliness of that truth always rears its ugly head.

So what do we do when all the prattle becomes too much?  What do we do when we can’t do anything about it? Why do we feel we have to be the ones to fix it?

So many minds are still focused on an election which has been over for six months.  Too many have stored up anger which will go on for months and even into years.  The topsy- turviness of our world has caused many to despair, give up and even cave to anxiety.

If anything is going to change in this world, there needs to be a return to the One who created it.  God is longing to hear from us.  He wants us to ask for His help.  He is the only One who can provide it.  We can’t suppress the anger that has overtaken our country, but He can.  Too many have forgotten how to do that.  We’ve lost sight of the power of prayer – especially when more than a few are praying for the same result.

If you’re tired of yucky news, if you feel cheated or lost by what’s going on in the world, if you want to retreat to a desert island forever, turn it over to God.  He has it all mapped out.  His plan is sure.  He will not disappoint us.  He loves us.  PRAY!



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

      That’s what’s so wonderful about our God. He’s the same today as he was yesterday and will be tomorrow. Our circumstances change but he’s consistent every day.

      • God is SO GOOD! I was tired when I wrote that, right on the verge of falling asleep after a long and challenging day. I was just going to write “I love this” and leave it at that. But I felt very strongly in my spirit that I needed to add the little Thank You prayer, because that was what I was feeling — very thankful for you.

        However, tired as I was, I wasn’t sure how to spell your name. I think it is rude to misspell someone’s name. So I had to stop in the middle of writing my short comment, and search around on my computer until I found your name.

        When I woke up and read your reply a few minutes ago: “I needed those words at just this moment” — WOW — I literally have goose bumps!! Because I came so close to not writing that second sentence, when I could not easily recall the spelling of Boecher — but that inner “still small voice” would not let up, until I found your name!!!!
