ART & POETRY FROM PAUL & KATHY BOECHER©

Our voice cries out when troubles come, we close our eyes and pray,

The darkest moments will succumb, our minds might tend to stray,

Temptation slithers into hearts, deceiving on its way,

The lies which cloud our deepest thoughts, can darken any day,

Our hope remains in promises that God rains down on all,

We trust because He doesn’t lie, He listens to our call,

Within the peril of each day, His brilliant light will shine,

No matter what life gives to us, we’re part of His design,

We have this blessed assurance, that He has got our back,

He walks with us, He carries us, He keeps us on His track,

And when our final hour shall come, our troubles fade away,

As heavenward He takes us home to live another day.

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.

    “Blessed Assurance” by Fanny Crosby is my all time favorite song. Thank you for a beautiful poem and picture to echo it.
