A babbling brook makes its way through the troubling rocks of life,

Yet nourishing as it bounces back and forth over them,

Within each of us is the ability to bounce back,

To regenerate,

To renew

To restore,

To reenergize and revive,

Not only within ourselves,

But through the paths we take through life,

Through those we meet along the way,

Through our reactions to the storms,

The fears,

The broken dreams,

We all have the ability to shine,

Our light can be  beacon for another,

It can give hope in time of adversity,

Time of hopelessness and despair,

Because the morning star is the brightest star,

It will last even through the darkest day,






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
