IN THE MIDDLE OF OUR TOWN


ORIGINAL ART & POETRY BY PAUL & KATHY BOECHER©

The broken down feed mill remains firmly planted aside the river bank,
Like a noble guardian, staunchly overlooking the water,

Once filled with golden treasure of the harvest,
It now stands as a tribute to its former glory,

It serves as a place to buy seeds, animal chow and bird food,

The silo which once poured grain into train cars,

Now stands as a monument to its former self,
In a place that offers no solidity –

No barricade against destruction –
No hope of replenishment,

Our harvest is not of this world, but a result of the seeds planted within us,
Treasure beyond measure,

Abundant life,

Fulfillment,

Satiation from hunger and thirst,

No fear of death,

Only eternal life.

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.

    Oh, I do understand. It is so nice to have one’s silo filled with life sustaining food for oneself and others. There are many who don’t have much left to give out. I’m sure there are many lessons to be taken from this beautiful art and text.
