(An aging egret seeks shelter in the Reeds)

As my old body tells me that it’s time to settle down,

I wonder of the time that’s left to me.

That even though my zest is gone, my eyes and ears are dim,

My aches and pains will never let me be,

But when we look at Jesus and the gift He brings to us,

I can’t hold back the joy that sets me free.

His Word is filled with promises that He will always keep,

He gave His life to save both you and me.

I wonder if I’d know Him when He was a baby small,

The Son of God who died without one plea,

He rose again and conquered death for all eternity.

My faith in His provision keeps me strong,

To share His loving message, with those He sends to hear me,

The Son of God and man will carry on.





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.

    I am presently going through a time of difficulty in my body where sickness and slowing down have seemingly become my enemies. It has become difficulty for me to accept this new “season?” in my life. I yet have the fight in me to not accept it yet. Yet your words here give me the courage to fight on a little longer. Thank you for your kind and generous words here.

      You are very welcome, Pam. I’m glad you gained strength from these words. I am going to be 76 this year and have some health issues too, but I’ve found it helpful to stay busy and focused on the final prize. That seems to help. I’ll keep you in my prayers as well😊
