What will remain when we are gone, what memories will stay,

How will the world remember us when we are far away,

The treasures that we leave behind are often just a breath,

A moment in this world of ours leads to eventual death.


Yet when we leave a piece of us, an act, a thought, a dream,

Some words of true encouragement, are more than what they seem,

When we can look outside ourselves and touch another soul,

Our lives will be sufficient then to reach our final goal.


When opening up our hearts in love,  our motives will be true,

Our tears and laughter will be shared in everything we do,

To live in true humility is not an easy task,

But when we do, we will be blessed with afterglow that lasts.



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 hope you are not planning on checking out any time soon, but for what time I have left, I will remember you, your humor, your encouragement, and your wonderful way of looking at things. I am sure there are many who would agree. I know for there are many you no longer write blogs for one reason or another, and I think fondly of them, like Julie. I don’t know if you followed Murdo Murchison from Scotland, but my niece knew him before he started blogging, and he must have died of the cancer that he had. Yes, we are here such a short time, but if we are remembered, it will be for the kindness shown.

      Thanks Mark. I think we’ll see Julie again when all is said and done. I appreciate your kind words about me, but it’s really not about us, is it? We are here to serve God and for his glory as you always end your posts.

        But Jesus told us to love one another, and that carries weight with it. It is not justa job or a calling. An old retired preacher friend once said that he was told that he would never make a successful preacher because he loved too deeply but I think he made a great one due to that trait.

  2. Kathy, I appreciate these verses so much. Humility is a very necessary place to be in our lives. When we do so, we are walking with Jesus, step by step. Blessings to you and Paul!
