Some days require walking, a trek into the woods,

A quiet, little respite, from cares of every day,

To have a good companion is also very good,

To walk right there beside you, and never from you stray.


A warm and furry buddy, who follows every step,

He always listens to you and never says a word,

He trusts in your direction to keep him safely kept,

He stays so closely by you and never is deterred.


When life is overwhelming, when we have lost control,

We have a great companion, who fills our every need,

He walks right there beside us when troubles take their toll,

And when our walk grows weary, His strength will intercede.



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
