Rippled sand forming a gigantic canvas reaching across the horizon.

Arid, barren, scorched and without life.

A seemingly insignificant expanse, devoid of moisture.

Enclosed by the sun, the wind and all the elements,

Segments of a pattern that once was woven into a beautiful tapestry.

Now empty of that magnificence, yet still a glimmer of life remains.

I stand at the edge of this expanse.

It is the next chapter in my journey of living.

Another adventure awaits on the other side.

A beauty beyond man’s creation,

Beyond human comprehension,

Outside the limits of my understanding.

The desert is like a wilderness – another trudge through the emptiness of joy.

Yet there is always hope.  There is always optimism.  God sees to that as He walks with me.

His footprints are beside mine imprinted in the carpet of sand. 

When it becomes too hard for me to handle alone, my footprints disappear.

Through the most difficult of life’s pages, He carries me.

I am redeemed.



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
