REMINDERS OF THE COST

ART & POETRY BY PAUL & KATHY BOECHER©

They called it Decoration Day so many years ago,
We’d dress our bikes with crepe paper to let our neighbors know,
Our pride was in the best place yet for anyone to grow,
Though times have changed and so have hearts, we still can make that claim,
We can’t deny the price they paid, their lives will still remain,
In hearts and minds of those they left, their loss became our gain,

Those precious lives preserved our own, through blood and sweat and tears,
They gave the greatest sacrifice so we could spend our years,                                                 Safe from the fear of
 freedom lost, to follow new frontiers,                                                      We pray to you our Father, God to keep our country safe,
Protect her from all tyranny and keep her in Your way.
It’s still the best place in this world. God bless the USA.

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.
