It’s the time of the year when folks go and hunt deer,

When they bond and have fun from the dawn of the sun.

As I sit here at home, by myself all alone,

I bask in quiet peace, as my thoughts now increase,

Looking inward I see, the core of my being,

I’m alone in my thoughts, as time now allots,

Solace in the small things – the joy that a voice brings,

The wail of a siren or the screeching of wheels,

Amplified sounds ring out and gain my attention,

And the peace now gives way, to boundless invention,

In the days long gone by, when my youth was still bold,

I’d fill all those moments, but now I’ve grown too old,

I’m quietly thinking, of  the things I could do,

But I never seem ready for the true follow through,

Instead I will wait with my thoughts full of him,

Thoughts tempered with silence and memories grown dim,

Soon he will return home, with no prize to display,

Renewed in his spirit, I can’t wait for that day.


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
