UNCLAIMED WILDERNESS

ART & POETRY BY PAUL & KATHY BOECHER

One of the most visited State Parks is Yellowstone. It is still an unsullied wilderness where wildlife can roam free – where the unexplained elements of nature abound. The addition of visitors who love these wondrous locations has tended to overcrowd them, but for the most part, they are preserved as they have always been.

When human lives invade the land, it’s bound to take its toll,

Like sin corrupts and sucks out life, investing in our soul,

These precious remnants of our land must not be overrun,

By those who care so little for what God has once begun.

The hand of God is evident, His finger formed the seas,

The mountain ranges still stand tall, the forests full of trees,

The waters raging over rocks, the splendid waterfalls,

The valleys green, the tepid springs, outshine man’s greedy calls.

Will all these places die some day, destroyed by man’s own hand,

Will animals that once flourished soon vanish from the land.

These places are not permanent, in time they too will fall,

But our God’s love never changes, He’s with us through it all.

Though our sin will still run rampant, infecting all our land,

Our God remains in charge of things, the world’s at His command,

But in the meantime may we try to keep our secure

So they will fill the hearts of those who follow and endure.

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.
