Ripple effects of every day, can change or drive us down,

The way to find contentment is in every perfect sound,

The breath of the wind entwines you, the grip of hate hangs tight,

No matter how you battle it, it’s right there in your sight,

A chain of events can start it, a stone thrown in the lake,

The repetition swirls around, with every step you take,

If we can control the patterns, we can enrich the path,

If we can decide our futures, or we subdue the wrath,

Alone we cannot achieve it, it takes a greater force,

A hand divine is most needed, to help us chart the course,

Our only hope is in Jesus, Beginning and the End,

He’s our only true foundation, our everlasting friend.



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

  1. Amen! Kathy, these verses remind me that only through faith in a Savior can life chart a course around the challenging rapids waiting ahead. Paul’s painting is filled many images: living water, creation’s constant flow, and our baptism. Blessings to both of you.
