This painting was a product of team work. I started the painting and Paul added the finishing touches. I could’ve felt disappointed by this, but I realized that the changes made were necessary to make a good painting. We sometimes forget that working together is so much better than doing something alone. Our voices can be heard much stronger when we join them. The inventions we come up with, the innovations and different ways of accomplishing them are all part of the team effort. Solving problems goes along with that. We need to compromise sometimes, we must listen to other opinions, we must give and take. That’s where the healing begins.

You can see Him in the morning mist or in refreshing showers,

He walks amidst the tallest trees and dots the fields. with flowers,

His voice is sweet yet full of power to all who want to hear it,

He reaches out his hand to all, but many don’t come near it,

His love is so much greater than we possibly could know,

He never will give up on us, He’ll never let us go.

Though we need God’s refining love and His sweet intervention,

Our hands are often tied and bound, we give way to dissension,

The world around us flails and falls, our cities fill with battle,

The leaders call for compromise, but that seems like more prattle,

We cannot come to terms with this, until our ears are opened,

Until the cries of justice ring and words more wisely chosen.



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

    It is so true that teamwork makes everything better. When we humble ourselves, others can help in the places that we are week. The team gets the prize not the individual. If one falls down, another can help pick them up and we can finish together. Thank God that you and Paul are a wonderful team together!

  2. Kathy, your points of working together are well taken. Teamwork is an essential characteristic of any athletic team. It is encouraged in the corporate world as well. It seems that life in the public arena has forgotten. Your final verses of the poem are right on target!
