Trees absorb the swirling power of a raging creek after a storm,

They stand at attention and then bow as they receive a cold splash of refreshment,

Branches whisper to each passing droplet,

As if speaking a silent prayer to the Creator of all things,

The artist lovingly caresses his paintbrush,

Filling it with glorious colors, dancing across the canvas, trying to imitate,

With abandon, with love, passion and the desire to replicate,

Still there is nothing that replaces the real thing,

These once tiny droplets, these tears from God,

Press on and become a flood within the rocks and roots,

They nourish, they feed, they revive and restore,

Only the Creator of all things can carve a river through the stone,

Only God can provide a peaceful valley for the river to reside,

Find your peace in Him.



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
