DIAMONDS IN THE SKY

©

ART & POETRY BY PAUL & KATHY BOECHER

Stalactites of ice hang from barren branches,

Frigid winds, encircle a forest of cedar,

Tall sentries, guarding the enchantment of beauty,

A place where dreams seem to be made,

Yet are far too distant to achieve,

A parent and child trudge through knee deep snow,

The child crouches deeply within the warmth,

Of a blanketed sled,

As the parent works up a sweat pulling him through it,

We follow a similar path in life,

We plow through the deepest of pain and suffering

We get stuck along the way,

Sometimes we skim right over it,

Other times, the ruts and pitfalls need guidance,

Most of the time we cannot make this journey alone,

We need a beacon to guide us,

To light to lead the way,

To lift us out of the darkness,

To keep us on track,

To help us reach our final destination,

One who will place diamonds in the sky,

As bright street lights,

One who shovels a clear path of gold,

Which shimmers in the cold wind,

One who loves us with no conditions.

OUR FATHER

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.
