LIGHT IN DARKNESS

swampORIGINAL ART & POETRY BY PAUL & KATHY BOECHER©

Through the cobwebs of existence – through the darkness of our strife,

Through the dankness of our sinning and the wickedness of life,

Through the deepest pits of hell and such helplessness we feel,

Comes a single light from heaven, for our sinful hearts to heal,

The light increases as we move, to witness a clearer glance,

But as we reach to touch the light, we’re enveloped in a trance,

It’s just within our reach we think, but no matter how we try,

Escape from the gloomy darkness, now consumes us from all sides,

Just when we think that all is lost and relinquish every hope,

The light erases darkness and through it we now can cope,

This little light from Bethlehem grew into a brilliant star,

He came to earth to save the world from sin and its deadly scar.

He came in darkness of the night, but His brilliance cannot hide,

We are redeemed by His great might,  He’s always by our side.

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.
