There is magic in the river.

She is filled with mystery,



Hope & sorrow,

Some find comfort in the tranquil ripples,

While others enjoy the turmoil created when the current stirs,

An empty barge moves to its destination,

Preparing for a heavy load,

A young boy longs for just one more day to drop a fishing line,

As the school bell rings, calling all to return,

A couple slowly walks hand in hand along the banks,

Contemplating a life together,

A homeless fellow rinses his face in the tepid water,

The river is for everyone,

It comes with no strings attached,

Only its being there,

Placed by God,

To nurture the earth,

And bring pleasure to His children,

Still a young woman stands,

Measuring the events of her short life,

Wondering if she can dispose of them,

Through a desperate attempt to end it all,

The river is for everyone,

It isn’t too late for anyone,

Even in the darkness,

Even in the sadness,

Even in times of danger or despair,

It doesn’t judge,

It just keeps rolling along.






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.
