Listen to the sounds –

the crashing of the box car containers,

As they transfer to waiting freight trains,

The rat- a- tat of a nail gun,

Attaching a new roof or constructing a building,

I feel the wind,

A gentle breeze wafting its way through the trees,

Tickling them as she passes,

I watch as children play and see,

Their enjoyment of each other,

Their joy in the little things,

Like digging in dirt, or playing tag,

The smells of the city,

Hot asphalt repairing broken roads,

The fragrance that emits from a bakery,

Or a pizza place,

All the senses come to attention in the city,

The angry groan of a car as it grumbles to start,

Birds chirping – doors slamming –  classical music emoting from a radio,

Distant sounds of traffic – an occasional jet flying overhead – the whir of a helicopter,

A garbage truck, the paper boy tossing the morning news at your door,

Always in motion, even while we sleep – always life – sometimes confusion,

Yet they comfort us with the knowledge that,

The world is still alive.




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
