As the morning light arises, on a pasture green sublime,

Sun light kisses trees and branches, balancing the sands of time,

Though through danger I will wander, snares are set at every turn,

God is there to guard my footsteps, leading me to where I yearn,

Peaceful, green and tranquil landscapes, skies are filled with golden light,

Yet the heat from summer sunshine, hasn’t risen to full height,

Listening as He sits with me, as my heart to Him I spill,

Understanding all I ask for, promises to do His will,

When at last my days are finished, I will walk on streets of gold,

No more tears, no pain or sorrow, only peace and love untold,

The darkness of an evil world, purged with grace from God alone,

I’ll walk in valleys green with life, for heaven will be my home.


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.

    Kathy, your words always soothe my soul. You so beautifully share the relationship and intimacy we can have with our Savior in nature and being “still” with him. Please tell Paul how much I love this painting, too. I love you and am sending prayers and blessings everyday! 💛❤️🙏🏻

        You’re so welcome, Kathy. I’m so glad they give you courage! It’s a light in my life! And today I had my yearly with my neurologist. I was dreaded the drive and other things…BUT for God! You know Julie Dibble? You and she are such strong prayer warriors. I feel them! I’ve lost a bit of strength on the left side, memory has not worsened and I’ll go for blood testing next. My dr is amazing. She is encouraged by all the things I’m doing to take care of myself. I would love to meet you, too. Yes, we’ll for sure meet in heaven, but how fun would it be on this side? ❤️💛♥️🤗🤗🤗🙌🏻🙌🏻
