SHIPS PASSING IN THE NIGHT

The snow on the ground here in the Tundra is causing the lakes not to thaw, so we still have frozen water.  Soon, however, ships will once again be launched, so let’s live the dream.

ORIGINAL ART & POETRY BY PAUL & KATHY BOECHER©

Like ships in the night, we pass through this life,

We’re tossed and oft crushed by the waves,

We sometimes sail peacefully then there comes strife,

It seems not a single one saves,

We enter a harbor protected and safe,

It cradles and calms all our fears,

A sweet sanctuary, a place to call home,

Unbound by sheer terror or tears,

Still waters there greet us, He’s waiting to meet us,

The Savior and King of the world,

No more shall we struggle our path is made clear,

His cloak of salvation unfurled.

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 have no withdrawal from the publishing, sometimes scheduling a week in advance, but I almost instantaneously have a withdrawal from the quiet time, when it’s just me and my Lord talking about stuff, which then becomes something on paper.

        I do all my writing for the day I publish usually. I’ve tried to schedule ahead but it takes too much of my time. I admire those like you who can. Ive been blogging for 4 years so sometimes I cheat and rewrite an old one. Now I’m really sick and don’t not want to do much😜
