ART & POETRY BY PAUL & KATHY BOECHER©

Through the cobwebs of existence – through the darkness of our strife,

Through the dankness of our sinning, through the wickedness of life,

Through the eternal pits of hell and the helplessness we feel,

A single beam of light from heav’n will hear our final appeal.

 

The light grows stronger as we move to get a closer glance,

but as we reach to touch it, we’re enveloped in a trance,

It’s just within our reach we think, but no matter how we try,

We can’t escape the darkness that consumes us from all sides.

 

Just when we think that all is lost, we surrender every hope,

The light erases the darkness, gives reason for us to cope,

This little light from Bethlehem became a radiant star,

Who came to earth to save the world from sin’s conspicuous scar.

 

The star that shone like heaven’s best, leads us to God’s only Son,

Our Savior, God, Immanuel, eternity He has won,

We are redeemed by His great might.  He always will abide,

He came in darkness of the night, but brilliance He cannot hide.

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.
