The merriment of Christmas, brings smiles to everyone,
But often we forget the joy of God’s own precious Son.
The packages are opened. The paper now is torn.
The ribbons lay upon the floor, expectation has been worn.
The wonderment of Christmas is over in a day,
But Christ, the Savior of the World, our sins for us did pay.

He walked among His people. He chose to do God’s will –
A perfect life He lived for us and took death’s bitter pill.
When all the joy of Christmas is packed and stored away,
The Light He came to bring us will live in us each day –
A light that can’t be hidden no matter what we do –
A light that lasts forever is shared through me and you.


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
