This beautiful relief carving was installed in January, 2003 at Bay Pines Lutheran School, in Bay Pines, Florida.  A friend recently sent photos of it so I’m sharing it with a poem I wrote to go along with it.


My Jesus is my everything, He always lives within me,
He is the shepherd of my heart, He knows right where I will be,
He guides, provides and leads me to, pastures clothed with morning dew,
Restores my soul and gives me rest, each morning makes me brand new,
When I stray far away from Him, He searches until He finds,
He leads me with His gentle staff, from danger of every kind,
He sets me on the narrow path, and even when death draws near,
The confidence that He gives me, will take away every fear,
For death will never o’er take me, He’s promised eternal life,
In heavenly glory I’ll live, free from the world’s ugly strife,
My head he anoints with His oil, My cup is filled to the brim,
His mercy and goodness will dwell, every day I live with Him.


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
