Up in the land of 10,000 lakes today, the skies are filling with an abundance of different kinds of clouds.  It’s always quite interesting to see a storm come together, starting with layers of many clouds in shades of grey.  The wind picks up and suddenly becomes still as the firmament becomes enshrouded in darkness.  The birds of the air seek refuge in trees.  The sun hides behind the darkness that proceeds to take over the sky.  Like a canopy of protection, broken and torn, you are alone in the midst of it.

You never know when storms will come to overtake you – to push you down and wait for you to try to get up again.  The wind tosses you about and the rains pour over you like a sea of troubled waters.  Life will be filled with these storms.  They come on us instantly, or they grow slowly and explode over time.

Whatever the storm you’re chasing right now, or the one that’s chasing you, remember that you are not alone in the darkness.  When you finally overcome the turmoil, you will be better for it.  When you are filled with hope and faith, God will be your partner.  He will reach out and touch you.  Lift you into his strong arms and place his protection over you.

YOU’LL NEVER WALK ALONE – By Rogers & Hammerstein

When you walk through a storm
Hold your head up high
And don’t be afraid of the dark
At the end of the storm is a golden sky

And the sweet silver song of a lark
Walk on through the wind, walk on through the rain
Though your dreams be tossed and blown
Walk on, walk on with hope in your heart
And you’ll never walk alone, you’ll never walk alone, you’ll never walk alone


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

    Thanks for the weather tip, but it will change in a day or two. After Julie said that she had so many friends that she has never met, I thought of us getting together this weekend, but you probably have family coming on the fourth, and I will be at my wife’s beckon call. We are getting to Elmo Lake on the fourth and going to a pavilion near White Bear Lake for a party. Then the wedding rehearsal dinner is at a German restaurant near White Bear Lake on the 5th, but my wife will cook some family up with her sisters during the day. The 6th is the wedding and then we leave the 7th for Memphis and the grandchildren – oh, my son and his wife, too.

    Maybe we should leave it as Julie said, having a gathering place in heaven for WordPress friends, a church unto itself.
