The arts have always been a wonderful way for us to express our thoughts and emotions and to use our God given talents to communicate them in one way or another. There are those who have the ability to share their ideas with the spoken word. The words can incite, excite, ignite or inspire others to action. The singing voice can uplift, delight and stimulate. The pen of the writer can create words to motivate, entertain or bring about change. The artist who creates pictures is taking us to other places with the use of his pencil or brush. Music has been known to soothe the savage beast and a dancer can use creative movement to breathe life into a piece of music.

We may not all be artists, musicians, orators or writers, but God has created us with certain gifts. Maybe you have the gift of encouragement. You might be good at building things. Your talents may lie in business or the medical arts. It is up to each of us to use what our gifts, to thank God for all He has done for us and further His kingdom. May He continue to use us for His purposes in this sinful world.

Let none hear you idly saying, there is nothing I can do. While the lost of earth are dying, and the Master calls for you; take the task He gives you gladly; Let His work your pleasure be; Answer quickly when He calls you,

Here am I, send me, send 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
