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.


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.



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
