Steam rises from the belly of the earth,

The sun pours its sultry rays over it,

Living things go in pursuit of refreshing water,

To quench the thirst and satisfy.


God does not fail to provide for them,

Cool, clear water bursts forth from mountain streams,

Creating ponds, rivers and lakes,

Filled with nourishment and daily sustenance.


God lifts us out of our pit of despair,

He covers us with His glorious wings,

Watching every step that we take,

Holding us when necessary.


The fields are filled with His glory,

They’re arrayed in beauty and provision for all,

Our cup will always be full,

For He is the giver of living water.



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. Amen! We will never feel thirsty again after receiving our Lord’s living water. Every moment I spend with God’s creation shows me how His plan blesses the smallest and most intricate details. Kathy, your poem complements the vision of Paul’s artwork. I feel much at peace.

    So many like the Samaritan woman before she met the Living Water- lost, confused, sin tossed, and seeking Truth.
