The Twin Cities of Minnesota was again attacked this weekend with unnecessary crime, killing one and injuring many.  The darkness that is beginning to encase our once lovely pair of cities on the river is turning faster than ever.  We need good leadershilp.  We need compassion.  We need to stop the hate.  We need GOD!

Shades of grey, crimson and yellow dot the cityscape with a magical mist,

Covering a multitude of sins,

I wonder if this is how we look to God?

Covered with a veil of repentance and grief over past sins,

Shrouded in a haze of uncertainty,


God looks at us and sees

Only His Son and what He has accomplished,

We no longer carry the undistinguishable,

The hidden,

The burden,

It has all been washed away in the blood of the lamb,

No longer are we seeped in darkness,

No longer in fear,

God has forgiven us all through His own Son, Jesus,

Let His love shine through us and bring that light to others.




About atimetoshare.me

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 Amazon.com.

  1. Kathy, your words apply to many of America’s urban centers, including Columbus, Ohio. Shrouded in darkness, this violent carnage continues.
