Away from the maddening crowds,

Deep in the heart of natural things,

Lifted to heights unknown,

Separated for a time from the chaos,

The destruction,

The anger,

The hatred and blood.

There must be a place to hide,

There must be a sanctuary large enough for all,

Enough to fit every troubled soul,

The Lord, God of Israel,

Father of the Living Messiah,

Creator of heaven and earth,

That is where true solace lies,

Where the lion lays down with the lamb,

Where living waters flow,

Where pain is nonexistent,

Where life is free from anxiety,

In His bosom, we find comfort, peace, hope.




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

    Oh, yes. And He invites us to come in and rest. All Ye Who Are Weary. I certainly do not consider myself weary, but I do have issues that I am weary about. I can give them to Him. He cares. Lovely poem and picture, and reminder of where to find rest.

  3. Amen! We can walk into God’s sanctuary at any given moment. His never has walls, the angels fill us with hymns, and His Word always brings comfort.
