A dream was hatched by a man,

A dream which allowed him to see the future,

Which gave him a glimpse of black and white co-existing,

Without complication,

Without hatred,

Without malice,

It was a dream which God gave to him,

A dream which we prayed would come to be,

A dream that should be reality,

But somehow became shrouded in darkness,

Smoldering into a flame that would not be consumed,

A raging fire, fed by rioting, violence, protest,

Hatred, malice and complication,

When will we learn,

We are all the same in God’s eyes,

We all have a place here,

If we don’t live together in unity,

We will surely perish,

If only dreams came true.




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

  1. It would be really helpful if God would send us another Martin Luther King…..and then I wonder would we listen any better if He did?

    We need another Martin Luther King Jr.
