ORIGINAL ART & POETRY BY PAUL & KATHY BOECHER©

Your hand reaches down and touches the vastness of creation,

Within your hand is the power to carve into mountains and establish flowage for the water,

In your voice is majesty and steadfastness,

With one word from you, all the angels bow in humility,

Your breath inspires us to speak your words,

Your eyes watch over all within your omnipotent sight,

Not a word or action goes unnoticed,

Not a prayer goes unheard,

Your ever presence comforts and protects us,

The mountains lay low at the sound of your voice,

You command water to spring from barren land and it heeds,

You say the word and your will is done, in spite of us,

Where can we hide from you?

Why would we try?

You created this place for us, but we have c0rrupted it,

You placed the sun, moon and stars in the heaven to bring us light,

We have polluted it with our sin,

Still you love us,

Still you will do anything for us,

Still you are a loving Father,

A sanctuary, a prince of peace and Lord of Lords,

Let me run to you instead of away,

Lead my steps to you instead of the world’s path,

Give me confidence that your way is the only one.

Let me rest in your unfailing love.

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.
