The sun lifts its weary head and opens its sleepy eyes,

Casting shadows upon the lake with diamond fireflies,

Water is still, ships stand tall, the air is heavy with mist,

This early summer morning now by heaven has been kissed.


Before the wake shows upon again, before the fish awake,

A single sail arises and begins to cross the lake,

The peace and quiet solitude will last a little while,

Soon sailing crafts and motor boats will fill the space with style.


When you live in Minnesota, the land of many lakes,

You relish ever second of the time that summer takes,

It’s simply a brief whispering of nature’s magic spell,

But God is in the midst of it so we know that all is well.



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. Seeing sailboats takes me to the water along Maryland’s Eastern Shore, filled with marinas, natural waterfront areas, boats of various sizes and purposes, and a hunger to preserve some of their past while marching into the future.

    My better half grew up there so I have been blessed to visit the area several times.
