I once in poverty did lay; my heart was full of need.

You came and took my sins away and now I’m rich indeed.

You gave your richest treasure – your one and only Son.

You are my greatest pleasure. With you I now am one.

Your Holy Word is perfect, Lord. Its teachings pure and true.

By faith we now accept it for it’s not by what we do.

The Bible offers strength and peace to our weak minds each day.

Our path is made both clear and straight by things you have to say.

You reach your hand out to me and you smother me with love.

The day cannot come soon enough, to see you up above.

But as I wait ’til that great day, I’ll serve you here below,

And know that when I leave this place, to heaven I will go.



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
