A majestic eagle spreads his wings, a span of eight feet wide,

The pinions on those glorious wings with heaven soon collide,

His feathers were made for reaching God, they also serve to save,

Protection for those just learning how to take off and be brave.

We are all like those fledgling youngsters, flailing to keep the pace,

We need the stronger presence of one who conquers time and space,

We turn our eyes to heavenly sites, praying for God’s own hand,

To take us to places beyond our realm, to another land.

We soar up so high with wings outspread, His breath will intercede,

We falter at times, but He’s right there to care for every need,

The gates to heaven will open wide, we’ll meet Him face to face,

He’s beckoned us rest in His strong wings knowing we’ve won the race.



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. Inspiring poem and artwork Kathy and Paul. The poem takes me to a favorite hymn “On Eagle’s Wings” while the image of the eagle exhibits its determination and strength.
