ART & POETRY BY PAUL & KATHY BOECHER©

(It always puzzles me how so many of the gigantic birds are able to lift their heavy bodies to the skies.  Even when their mouths are filled with breakfast and the aerodynamics seem impossible, they find the current in the wind and are lifted to heights unknown.  What a great Creator God we have.)

This place that we have loved, this lonely withered space,

Has faltered with the winter snows and cannot rise again,

Without that inner life, that comes from heaven’s place,

Our lives will be diminished and scorned as dead terrain,

Within the ashen colors, inside the lifeless trees,

The damage has been sown, there is no longer gain,

Tempests are replaced with a quiet gentle breeze,

 

Though life has been drained from it, the fight will not be lost,

The battles will remain, but victory has a cost,

The precious blood of Jesus has paid for every sin,

And wrapped us with the will to live and new life to begin.

Our loss in life will be our gain, when to the end we come,

When we decrease we will increase, God’s plan than will be done.

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.

  1. when I was in high school, I ran track.
    Our track coach was also one of our history teachers.
    He would always try and pull snippets of inspiration to encourage us before a meet.
    On one occasion he told us that it was aerodynamically impossible for a bumblebee to fly.
    I embraced this notion as I had rather short legs and was not exactly built to be the longer jumper that I was.
    Later that little bit of information was debunked but it had done its work on me.
    I got 2nd in region that year…
    who says short thick little white legs can’t jump!?
