Deep within the tallest pines, with dark night’s haze enshrouded,
A hidden place held by webs of silver threads beclouded,

A quiet sanctuary and a place to run and hide,
A home to lick the wounds of hurt and safely stay inside,

Away from life’s diversions, a shelter to call your own,
Where you can hide your troubles and inter them all alone,

A place like that does not exist when you believe in God,
For He will never leave your side, no matter where you trod.

He’s by your side through all your pain, through joy and suffering too,
He knows you need Him close at hand to help you see it through.

You simply cannot escape Him, He’s in the air you breathe,
Give in to His divine control, His blessings He’ll bequeath.



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

  1. Amen! Kathy, I enjoyed the defining contrast between the beginning of the poem with the intended vision we experience with God. Blessings to you and Paul.

    He’s in the air I breathe; I don’t wish to ever escape HIM. What beautiful words, Kathy. Please let Paul know that his painting reminds me of a place I love to hike in Mountain Home, Idaho on the Snake River. Blessings to you both.

      Thanks Karla. I’ll make sure he reads your message. A lot of his paintings are created from fond memories on various trips he’s taken out west. Beautiful country indeed 😀
