This series of paintings was done about eleven years ago, by Paul Boecher. The poem by Kathy Boecher was written about four years later. I discovered these paintings recently and realized I hadn’t shown them before. Always finding treasures at my house.
ART & POETRY BY PAUL & KATHY BOECHER
A bumpy journey over rough terrain,
We start out fresh, but never are again,
Each day the challenges bring joy or pain,
We search for treasure and for earthly gain,
We suffer much when we cannot obtain,
Desire fills us with an ugly stain,
Sin overtakes and faith will often wane,
But still, there’s hope in time of heavy strain,
Satan launches his devious campaign,
Our Savior then unlocks each heavy chain,
And takes us to our heavenly domain.
