The days are much longer, the sun’s here to stay,

We’ve turned life’s cold corner and it’s a new day,

The once frozen waters are now clear and blue,

Earth covered with new growth and fresh sun kissed dew,

The sweet songs of springtime come from every tree

The long dormant branches, don buds that grow free,

The dark days of winter relinquish their hold,

A peace lies in springtime which never grows old,

The grass pushes forth and new life finds its way,

Through mulch and dead leaves it comes out now to play,

I sit here and wonder how life starts anew,

How death can evade us yet carry us through,

The darkness of days to a bright shining light,

I think then of Jesus and of His great might,

He’s cast off the shackles and burdensome load,

Our freedom He’s purchased, and made straight the road,

Perfection awaits us in Heaven’s sweet home,

Exploding as springtime, no more shall we roam.



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

    I wonder how it is that I am so hesitant to turn loose of winter here to enter heaven there. Spring is my favorite season.

      I love spring too with all the new life popping up all over, but our spring quickly turns to summer heat. I feel blessed to have all four seasons where I live.

    Do you believe we will have all four seasons in Heaven? I tend to think so because Gen 8:22 While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease

    Kathy, I always love and admire the imagery and figurative language you use. Nature and God–they are one. His promises, just like the coming of Spring, never fail us. I feel blessed to experience the changes of the seasons. Love you! I’m having to stop reading now and move on to another task. Please stay safe and healthy today. 🤍
