Hidden in the darkness, as shadows slowly fall,

Far away from others, enjoying nature’s call,

Their one essential goal, to find a peace sublime,

Far from the maddening crowd, alone to spend some time,

We all have days like that, when fears can overtake,

When predators and foes know what steps they will take,

To overcome our vision, to satisfy their needs,

They go to any length, insuring our heart bleeds,

They hunt us and attack, they claw and tear our flesh,

Holding in their talons the core of what is fresh,

But still we will press forward, in search of an escape,

Our enemies surround, yet we are not alone,

The King of grace stands by, to take us safely home,

We must trust in Jesus and His abundant love,

He’s come to pay the price, from heaven’s home above,

A friend He’ll always be, protection in His wings,

Our hearts are filled with joy, as words of peace He sings.


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

    Love it. Resting under the wings. You have used the Biblical analogy of the hen and chickens in another delightful image. Thanks.
