It’s finally come – your high school graduation,

So now what are you going to do?

You look quite amazing – beyond expectation,

Just think of what you have been through.

You’ve gained so much knowledge in twelve years of schooling,

The paper you hold is the proof,

Your future awaits as your life is refueling,

You are bound to raise up the roof.

Your strong perseverance and faith in your Savior,

Will guide you through times of distress,

He’ll be there each day to protect your behavior,

Leading you away from the mess.

As you open the door to this undertaking,

Remember where from you have come,

A new door is opening, a new life you’re making,

Now tighten it up like a drum.

Your future is filled with unknown expectations,

But your steps will fashion your way,

Trust God will be with you in all celebrations,

Start with this graduation day.





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 Karla. I’m printing the five posts I wrote for Kaeli’s graduation and will give them to her as a keepsake. They will probably mean more to her in the future.
