As we pass by quiet waters, longing for thirst to be quenched,

As we taste that sweet, clean liquid, all our sins will soon be drenched,

Our sight restored, our outlook new, our lips regain their luster,

Refreshed, sustained, alive once more, with words we cannot muster.

Within our hearts there is darkness, sin that must be washed away,

All the filth of inner dankness, rises from the depths each day,

There is nothing we can offer, not a thing that we can do,

To remove the stains of evil, only God can see us through.

He provides the perfect answer, He alone can fill the space,

He alone provides solutions, with His special brand of grace,

He has deemed our hearts forgiven, by the blood of His own Son,

Now relief is in our vision, with the Father we’re made one.



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

      Thank you, David. Paul & I are still enjoying reading your first edition of “Psalms 365” and enjoying every one of them.


  2. As Paul’s painting takes me to Creation’s peace, your words remind of our Lord’s sharing of the Bread of Life . . . only He can remove the stains of evil’s darkness.
