RIDING TO ANGEL’S WINGS

ART & POETRY BY PAUL & KATHY BOECHER©

A blue-grey sky, rolls swiftly by, the clouds enwrap its glory,

The road is paved with gilded stones, that tell an endless story,

A husky mule, a rugged man, set out to see what nature brings,

They take the path less travelled and fall on angels’ wings,

The beauty of the landscape, enriches this sweet scene,

As light reflects on every rock, new life will reconvene,

An eagle watches from afar – takes in your every move,

While you may falter, He is there to guide you and reprove,

When days grow long and life wears on, we search for simple things,

So take a road less traveled and fly on angels’ wings.

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.

    Well describes what I enjoy about a good hike.

    When I lived in Colorado Springs, I made every effort to hike in the mountains. Gorgeous!

    Now I live in Virginia. Still enjoy hiking, but here there is more life. The scenic landscape view are difficult to find. What is fun is what we see up close.

    The Hand of God is on all of it.

      I never was much of a hiker, but I do love looking at God’s creation. I got mountain sickness when we went to Estes Park several years ago, but it didn’t discourage the rest of the journey. I’m glad this stirred good memories for you.

        I have seen people get completely incapacitated in the mountains. When fly from sea level to 8,000 ft., that doesn’t leave time to adjust.

        My situation took place when I got into the small camper attached to our truck. I could barely move and the walls seemed to be closing in on me. I began to scream, “get me out of here,” at the top of my lungs. I wonder what everyone thought was going on in that camper.

        Mountain sickness also goes by the name altitude sickness. Going from six to ten thousand feet in a car is a big change, especially if you normally reside at sea-level.

        When the air gets thin, we have trouble getting enough oxygen out of it. Another name for an oxygen deficit is hypoxia. Getting drunk also causes hypoxia. When I figured that out, I decided that was another reason to stay away from alcohol.

        Anyway, if you had trouble explaining your behavior, there was a good reason for that. You were sort of drunk.

        When I lived in Colorado, I was young and fit. I also had some time to adjust to six thousand feet before I started hiking in the mountains. When I was hiking on Pike’s Peak, I saw a couple of guys hauling a soldier from Fort Carson down to the base of the mountain. That poor guy was out cold. Hopefully, he completely recovered. In retrospect, I suspect his body was in shock, and that’s serious. Main thing I guess was to keep him warm and get him to lower altitude.

        I didn’t get to the point of feeling drunk. More claustrophobic, I have a fear of small places too. I came out of it as soon as I opened the door.

        Glad it was not too severe.
