A bright and wintry morning, the master and his dog,

Trudge through the new white fallen snow, their breath becomes a fog,

The dog park is not far away, but temperatures are cold,

The wind chill makes it feel like it is fifty five below,

Still onward they push forward, both freezing inside and out,

Longing for interaction, but there’s no one else about,

The two of them grew old you see, they cannot walk so far,

Looking at his master he says, “we should’ve taken the car.



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

    Bundle up. The Weather Channel says that it only takes 10 minutes to get frost bite with the temps that you are getting. We missed the worst of it. High today may be about 12 with the low tonight below zero, but nothing like the numbers I am seeing from MN and WI.

  3. listening to your dog, you would have had a different story.
    This time your dog had a part
    of your conversation in the park.
