Can you imagine sitting on the stump of a downed tree at the edge of the river?  Your makeshift fishing line dangles lifelessly.  You dip  your toes into the refreshing water.  The sun is hot and this is a perfect day to go down by the riverside for some welcome relief.

A paddle boat from another time floats by – chugging along as the paddle wheel powers the engine.  Reminder of a quieter more peaceful time – a time which stood still for a while, as you let all your cares float away with it.

The dog days of summer are here again.  Today we gain relief from our air conditioned homes, restaurants, churches and more.  Some choose to stay inside for the entire hot season.  Oh what they’re missing.

In the beauty of God’s creation, our souls become refreshed – our bodies renewed – our minds cleared.  We can unwind, kick out the demons, renew and restore our hearts. I guess that’s why God created the seasons.  Each has its own form of restoration.

Dear Creator of Heaven and Earth, you’ve provided a place for us to live and enjoy our living.  The core of your creation calls out to us – Come unto me and I will give you rest.  The Spirit sweeps through nature like the invisible wind.  Breathe your spirit on us this Sabbath day and help us to appreciate all your blessings.  Amen!


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
