The ravages of winter have all but covered the once fertile fields of this beautiful, old barn, but life still exists within and without. The memories emanating from my grandparent’s farm continue to remind me of a simpler life – a life without so much complication, worry, derision – just normalcy. I’m certain that farm living isn’t perfection, but it’s a diversion from what we view as the rat race of the every day. Maybe that’s why Jesus referred to the farmers and shepherds of His time. Lots of lessons to be learned – not only about life, but how to live it – not only about God, but all He does through His creation and nature – not only about compassion, but selflessness, hard work and sharing – not what we learn by reading, but by what we actually see occurring in the field. I could easily spend my remaining days in such a peaceful environment.




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.
