A light haze kissed the surface of the steamy water as we set sail that morning.  Sea gulls hung in the air searching for their breakfast.  It seemed too hot to venture out on the boat that morning, but it felt like the only relief from the summer heat.  The wake licked the sides of our craft as it cut stealthily through the mist.  The sun grew hotter and there was no break from the 103 degree temperatures.  We made our way back to the dock and spent the rest of the day dangling our toes into the sultriness of the lake.  In the meantime, we find respite in total emersion into those steamy waters.   

Tomorrow is another day.



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

    I do not swim. Could never overcome my fear of water more than four inches deep. 😀 But I did like to sit on the side of streams or swimming pools. Wish I could still do so. I find it too difficult (impossible) to sit down and get up. So I get refreshed by sticking my toes into the Streams of Living Water. That’s good too.
