A landscape filled with a plethora of splendid textures,

A treasure trove just waiting to be wallowed in,

The roughness of a sandy hill leads to a path of prickly pines,

Winding and swirling into a pond of still, glasslike water,

Surrounded by a patch of fragrant, leaf-filled trees, towering to the heavens,

The wind makes itself known as you feel it wash over you,

Experience the compassion of God as you receive it,

Look to the heavens and see Him,

Trust in His sustaining love as He leads you,

Through soft, green pastures,

To refreshing, life giving water,

Touch His face through His magnificent creation,

Enjoy each moment.

Breathe it all in,

Don’t let a bit of it slip away,

This is where God lives,

In the patchwork of a landscape,

In the quiet of a meadow,

In the peace He places in our hearts.


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.

  1. Beautiful! These words took my breath away:

    This is where God lives,

    In the patchwork of a landscape,

    In the quiet of a meadow,

    In the peace He places in our hearts.

  2. Kathy, your poem and artwork fit together in a special way. I can see and feel the natural landscape of our Creator while He manages our very human landscape.

  3. I watch a series on tv Waltons that the eldest son writes his thots describing the activities and ways. A friend and I shopped one time getting printed design paper that intrigued me to write what I saw.

      I agree that we should write what our thoughts are. We have a whole lifetime of experience to draw on by doing so. Thanks for stopping by.
