The vine is rooted in the ground, the tendrils weave and hold,

Leaves appear and small clusters form, in bunches they explode

Those leaves are made like hands you see, with veins spread deep inside,

The life that surges through this plant with care it will survive.


For fruit to grow upon the vine, fresh water it must drink,

The root must remain solid or plants choke in a blink,

The fruit relies upon the root to grow abundantly,

Producing luscious flavor which is  ineluctably.


When we are deeply rooted in the source of life alone,

When God gives us living water, we have become His own,

It’s now our obligation to feed others with this love,

So we all can be together rejoined in heaven above.





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

      Oh how I’ve missed you, my friend. I’m hopeful that this means your art is selling like hot cakes and you’re obtaining the success you so much deserve. Thank you for your compliment. I haven’t painted for some time. I guess I should get started again. Love you to pieces.
