IN THE MIDDLE OF OUR TOWN

ORIGINAL ART & POETRY BY PAUL & KATHY BOECHER©

The broken down feed mill remains firmly planted aside the river bank,
Like a noble guardian, staunchly overlooking the water,

Once filled with golden treasure of the harvest,
It now stands as a tribute to its former glory,

It serves as a place to buy seeds, animal chow and bird food,

The silo which once poured grain into train cars,

Now stands as a monument to its former self,
In a place that offers no solidity – no barricade against destruction –
No hope of replenishment,

Our harvest is not of this world, but a result of the seeds planted within us,
Treasure beyond measure,

Abundant life, fulfillment, satiation from hunger and thirst,
No fear of death,
Only eternal life..

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.
