A baby osprey surveys the life that lays ahead of him,
His eyes are wide with wonder and his vision never grows dim,
The artist captures all of this with pencils in a sketchbook,
Within the lines and colors, he draws so we can take a look.

This little bird, just broken forth, holds the world within his sight,
Soon he will grow and learn to fly and soar to heaven’s great height,
Like every life exists to be something special in this life,
He’ll try and fail a hundred times and take on many a strife.

Yet even he, though small and frail, remains in the Father’s eyes,
The God of our Creation, protects from His throne in the skies,
If He safeguards this tiny bird, much more He’ll watch over us,
We are His prized possession, on that we sincerely can trust.


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

  1. Kathy, this poem richly illustrates the symphony of God’s creation. Paul’s artwork demonstrates the wonder of these young birds as they mature and take flight just as our own children do.
