Our vision becomes clouded and sometimes we just don’t see,

That there’s so much more out there, then one lonely little tree,

The world is full of magic light, of power in every deed.

But our eyes become unfocused, we cannot intercede.


Our days become so busy that we often miss the boat,

Get out of bed, get dressed and fed, forget to wear a coat,

We put on shoes that hardly match and socks – one short, one tall,

We speed to our destination at someone’s beckon call.


We need to take a little time to look around our space,

Enjoying things we rarely see because of the rat race,

It only takes a moment –  look beyond that single tree,

The vastness of a forest stands for every eye to see.


Grasp hold of all that’s out there, gaze beyond periphery,

God sculpted every mount and hill, created every tree,

The waters He laid carefully to nourish every seed,

His love apparent everywhere, He gives us all we need.























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
