The waters part, the seas prevail,
The excess pours into streams of rushing refreshment,
Tumbling over granite, forging a new path,
We bathe in the cleanliness of it,
All our darkness is washed away,
In the sound of it, we hear God’s voice,
The taste cools the palate and brings relief,
Senses are aroused,
We are in direct communication with the Creator,
Storms rage, obstacles stand in the way,
My God is not moved,
His consistency remains,
We are at times crushed like hammered glass,
Still the peace emanating from His omnipotent voice calms,
Even in the raging which surrounds,
We come to Him confident that He will still the waters,
He can calm the storm,
He will provide a safe path,
He will lead us through His Word,
He will protect with His power and majesty,
Praise to God,
My Rock and my Salvation.

The surface of the highest peak,
The strength of granite can’t compete.
The hardest rock, the toughest stone,
Can’t take the place of God alone,
His power is much greater than,
The self-contained of any man,
He lives in every space of life,
He carries me through pain and strife,
My God is greater than my fears,
He cleanses me through all my tears,
He lifts me to the highest height,
He stays with me both day and night,
He is my strong foundation,
As He pours out salvation.



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
