A MIND IS A TERRIBLE THING TO WASTE


ART & POETRY BY PAUL & KATHY BOECHER ©

The above still life was missed on yesterday’s gallery, but one I believe is worth sharing. The poem is new. Enjoy!

 
Words intertwine through the tapestry of my mind, 

As the flying shuttle weaves its way through my thoughts and emotions,

Each new thread engages the fabric of my being, 

I am pushed, enveloped, integrated, tied in knots at times. 

Each word I write is a part of the finished product,

The person I’ve become through life’s complex twists and turns. 

Each thought has shaped my relationships, my goals and dreams, 

But the One creating the tapestry knows what He’s doing,

Even when I go off track, He knits me carefully back into His perfect design,

He alone gives me words and thoughts to use for His glory. 

Lord, make me an instrument for you! 

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.
