(This pencil drawing lives on our living room wall. It is one of my favorites works of Pauls art. The detail in every inch is like the patchwork of our lives. It has won awards.)

Each line is like a vein, that weaves both in and out,

Each shadow is created as we search the world about,

Our paths may go in different ways, they lead to where we’re going,

But often we just hide away, and leave some seeds for sowing.

Each whisper of the wind can satisfy our longing,

The tempest of the breath of God assures us of belonging,,

The road is filled with obstacles and detours on the way,\

But God will lead us bck to Him as we begin to stray.

His tender touch will guide us, through wind and sleet and rain,

He’ll carry us through danger through suffering and pain,

Because He is our Father God, we know His love is true,

He carries us when we can’t walk and brings us safely through.



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

  2. Kathy, thanks so much for sharing one of Paul’s masterpieces. Just as your verses take us on a never-ending journey, the painting can be viewed with a different interpretation each time.
