The sassy winds of autumn swirl through wilting trees of gold,

The life is being sapped from things including young and old.

The brilliance of each final growth is now exposed to rage.

Regeneration lies beyond the cold and wintry thrust.

A life renewed, refreshed, restored awaits us in the spring,

Our bodies wither and they die, but new life God will bring.

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

  2. I forgot to mention Paul’s painting. The scene surrounding the golf course green with its flag fluttering in the wind is a reminder to any golfer in the northern climates. Spring will return!
