CALM BEFORE THE STORM

ART & POETRY by PAUL & KATHY BOECHER©

As I sit at my window this morning, a cold front is slowly moving across the sky. The humidity and dew point have finally taken a dive. Soon refreshing rain will come to replenish the earth and give new vigor to the plants. Thank you, Lord, God, for always giving us relief. In Jesus name I pray. Amen!


Life and all its rigor, anxiety and friction,

Comes to a screeching halt when you find that tranquil place,

A sanctuary that gives you complete peace.  

It can be held in words written on a page,

The sounds of nature,

Or the music of a classical masterpiece.

It can be a memory of a place once traveled –

A site untouched by human hands which has endured the test of time –

A place where only you and God exist together in perfect harmony.

But storms will come, clouds will gather, perilous skies will open,

Shooting its ammunition upon our heads and into our lives,

We become tattered, broken and worn,

But God’s sanctuary remains the same,

Constant,

Consistent,

Compassionate,

Filled with love everlasting.

If we simply let it rain.

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.

    This is simply beautiful. I have let it rain, Kathy. Saying good eye to my “kids” and truly gripping reality allowed the rain and tears to fall. And it’s Christ who comforts. Thank you sweet lady for your constant witness and encouragement 💛🤗❤️
